Immortal

The sound of thunder rings across the air but this is no storm clouds to be seen. Instead, a stunning Saturday morning presents and I can't help but notice as I make my way up the road the sounds of rushing water booming throughout the forest. The snows of winter are almost gone from northern Utah except for the mountain tops, and the creeks are brimming with energy. The air at Wheeler Canyon is thick with insect life, much more than last year, swarming about and I barely dodge a ball full of airborne attackers. There is just something about fast moving waters that arouses the curiosity and excites the senses! I love it and seize the moment to capture the water rushing over a log, pinned against a boulder slowing losing the war of erosion. Immortal.
