Colorado River

Visited the old hometown of Columbus over the 4th of July weekend. While there I broke out the camera and the infrared filter. This is a view of the Colorado River from the edge of the front yard.


See that line of willow trees and such on the opposite shore? None of that was there while I was growing up. That was a wide, sandy beach I always thought would be great for some entrepreneur to open up as a kind of rural beach attraction. When I left for college, several years of dry weather allowed a handful of trees to take root, and ensuing floods the following years failed to dislodge them. 'Tis a pity--that was a nifty beach.
