Down by the River

Living amidst the awe-inspiring sights and sounds of the mountains and a large, deep glacial lake, it's easy to overlook the timid serenity of a warm, shallow river. In the evening, when no one's around except for the occasional mallard, it is the river with its seemingly ancient weeping willows that offers true solitude. Whereas the hypnotic waves of an ocean-like lake push one closer to the sense of eternity, it is that same river that gently brings one back to the beauty of the everyday.
