This river may be small, but it is ours and this is our view. Someone with a good arm can throw a rock across it. With the current heat and drought, I could wade across it and not get my shorts wet. But when the water is up a bit, we can actually swim, or at least float in a tube, right here. Up or down stream, it is shallow enough in summer that one's butt drags on the bottom when one sits in an inner tube.
And unlike almost any of you who may read this blog, we could get in a canoe here and paddle to Canada on this river.
If any of you want to know the name and location of this river, please email me privately and I'll answer.
