birth of a river

Snowmelt, passionate about becoming a river one day, tumbles through rusty rocks like a reckless toddler learning to run before she can walk. I love the deafening sound of one waterfall joining a lower waterfall, love the feel of cold mist on my face and hands, love knowing this rowdy water will ultimately meet other mountain streams to become the mighty Rio Grande.
