There Was Water . . . Briefly   Leave a comment

When I rode yesterday, I was interested to see evidence that there had been real water in the river.  There isn’t any now, but I could see its tracks, so to speak.  I wondered if the dying trees hand gotten a reprieve.

So we — Kitty, me, Peaches, and Xena, as usual — set out to see where it had come from.

It was a beautiful day for a ride.

We headed upriver, with Xena showing the way.

Pretty soon, we came to the beaver pond.  It was higher than usual.  (I should have waited for the dust to settle.)

So . . . we went on.

It turned out that there was a lot of water being bypassed from the canal into the river.

I think we would have had more of it downriver, if not for those busy beavers.

I’ve got to restrain myself a little.  Ever since I realized I could use the iPhone to take pictures from Kitty’s back, I’ve been immortalizing every ride.  I’m sure Kitty is tired of stopping all of the time.

Or maybe not.
