Wings In the Wings
On any trip to town, I cross two loops of the middle fork of the Cosumnes River (unless I go via Pleasant Valley and then also cross the north fork). For months, the water level has been so low one could wade across the river. After our recent rains, it was wonderful to see torrents of water rushing downstream again yesterday. I'd waited to make the trip for a day or two because of road conditions. The wind and rain had brought tons of leaves and pine needles down, making the roads as slick as ice. The leaves had blown away, but pine needles were rolled into small logs, nature's speed bumps. It was a quick trip and I didn't waste any time getting home.
