About Today’s Photo:
We had the pleasure of camping on Green River Reservoir over the weekend. Near the north end of the lake, we came across this stump sticking out of the water. A birch seed had found purchase there and had started to grow. There’s a metaphor there someplace! Elmore Mountain peeks up above the trees at the southern end of the lake.
