Walking in the Truckee River

Okay, it’s sad. The Truckee River is empty. But not entirely! We did get a little rain over the summer, so the river has small pools of water feeding a bit of life. Here are the photos of our stroll along the side of the Truckee River and in the river bed.

I love this one. The flowers look like they’re floating.

I like the yellow against the grays, greens and black.

A few years ago, we rafted down this river with our family.

This water has collected from runoff from summer rain.

Water is so pretty, even when there’s just a little.

Sunlight in the forest is so pretty.

Happy Wednesday, or Thursday, as the case may be!

    I hardly can stand when something awful like that happens with nature…too sad actually! Nature is really beautiful there! It can be so nice if everyone on the planet can understand this problem and maybe do something to improve it or at least try not to spoil anything!
