Along the Smith River

DSCF3929

The Smith River in SW Virginia is not a large body of water, but historically it’s persistent, and today is a favored spot for fresh water trout fishing, thanks to the efforts of environmental groups to keep it clean and healthy, and also due to the efforts of governmental agencies such as the Army Corps of Engineers who keep river levels reasonable, thanks to frequent water release from a large dam. When I walk along the river on a hot, humid day, the water temperatures being low, keep me cool, and the refreshing smells around me remind me of just how wonderful nature is. Appreciate what we have, that’s my motto. I even spotted Mr. Groundhog watching me as I passed by.
