Above the River

A blanket of warm humid air for two days, then rain in a fury exhausted itself upon the roadways Friday morning. But driving northwest, we came through the other side to a day of unexpected blue brightness. Wind picked up, blowing us cold as we hiked to Weverton Cliffs once again–a year and half and major surgery later. Up the switchback trail to the rocks. Clouds ran in currents, diving across the sky. The river shone. Pine trees crackled, flinging the scent of pine sap. Deciduous trees debated changing colors. Rocks warmed in the sun. A good day to breathe deeply.
