Hard rock paved smooth from years of water rushing over it.

Quick, fast, deadly.

Green and purple brush stand guarding, witnessing the rise and fall of water.

Summer brings people to traverse from one cavity to another.

Birds sing in tree tops to the awe of no one.

The damp fresh earth entertain the hikers.

Soft conversations wander through the dense brush.

Boisterous laughter fades into the river behind.

Green ferns surround purple lace leaves.

Yellow ribbons cut through the fine green planks.

Pebbles dribble down the trail side.
