It Rains

For awhile, we all worried about the snowpack in the mountains: 
not much rain in November and December. 

The rain now comes down in buckets. 
February is making up for lost time.

Safety is a rock.

Abandoned cabin in a forest

It's been a while since I've spent the day in the woods.  I forget that, when in the forest, one is in the moment.  Later, it is in my mind.  Thinking about it brings out feelings I can't explain.  

Front door

The cabin was one part of the whole of this day.
I wondered about the person who stayed there
cold and wet in the winter 
but especially grey
living or just staying?
High up looking east

Beautiful view of the river before the trees grew up.
The writing on the wall said 1958.
Artifacts of a life of another time
strewn about here and there 

Built next to a boulder 
Safety is a rock.
