Pack 166 people on a single-track trail in the uplands of Grapevine Lake and they’ll spread out quickly; soon enough, it’s mostly just you and the birds for a couple of hours. Except for that guy and his target practice. Flooding is not good for trees. Flooding collects so much of the detritus of our modern life that it obviously takes months for volunteers to pick all of that litter up and haul it off in trash bags. The abandoned refrigerator that was a landmark during the drought is still a landmark, but much further downstream. And it has a twin.
But the sunrise was beautiful.
