This is the river that runs behind The Purple Rose. It's really high right now and the waves over the rapids look like the ocean! You can feel the energy back there and see the amazing beauty. And this pic was before the new rainfall today! Mother nature is awesome in her power. And really nothing 'man' does will 'conquer' her. We must respect her and honor her and live in harmony with her while we're here. I was reading last week on one of the on-line news pieces about an island that Bangladesh and India had fought over for quite some time. Because of the rising water levels the island disappeared. All that fighting over nothing. We can learn so much from our 'Mother'.
