By Rivers in Fall

"Wildness can be a way of reassuring ourselves of our sanity as creatures, a part of the geography of hope" - Wallace Stegner

rivers and creeks in western washington are at their most alive in fall with reflected maple colors, with salmon swimming upstream to spawning grounds after first heavy rains; woodlands abundant with mushrooms and lichens after a long dry summer.
