Effervescent Stream

thumbnail-1 (1)Great Blue Heron Lifting Off

This is how I prefer my sparkling water 🙂 My family spent many happy hours by rivers and streams that looked just like this out in California. This scene is from a stretch along the Des Plaines River Trail. Not part of the main river, I believe. Sort of a river spur.  I think what we’re seeing is a bit of engineering to recreate a meander, with some nice rocks added. I won’t venture into the debate over whether it’s “natural”~ I’ll just enjoy it for the momentary transport it offers me to wilder rivers I have known.
