“Water is the softest thing, yet it can penetrate mountains and earth. This shows clearly the principle of softness overcoming hardness.”

Lao-Tsu
Salmon River idaho

An oldie but goodie- from a Middlefork (of the Salmon River) rafting trip. But..I did drive along the Salmon for several hours today, and was awed by the canyons of small rivers cutting through massive mountain.

Also happened to splice my hand open on a piece of shale yesterday, reminding me how very sharp river rock is, until it spends some time underwater.

Getting under was hard today- mainly bc I put it off until 8 pm. But, like most things the pain of procrastination far outweighed the action, which felt wonderful. Small pond on Whitetail Ranch in Florence, MT. Feeling grateful for time on the water, a healing hand and no flat tires over the sharp shale- laden pass I took to get here.
