As if there has to be a reason

Yesterday at the river I had no luck with the trout, but I think these photos show why that didn’t matter: the beauty of the place gives me enough reason to be there.

Yesterday’s photos of the chokecherries were taken a hundred feet up the bank. Today I returned for some berries and brought back 32 pounds of them which we are now making into jelly and syrup. I don’t think the bears will miss that much. The amount of bear sign down there was surprising, considering how close to the house it is. They must camp there regularly, probably sleeping in the thick brush during the day and feeding on berries all night. And just maybe they enjoy the scenery as much as I do.
