Rivers and Mountains

Posted on: September 13, 2011

Not sure why, but I’ve always been fascinated by rivers – The Mighty Mississippi, Old Man River, Huck Finn rafting the Mississippi.  Well, I’ve seen 2 more – Snake and Columbia.  These rivers also remind me of Lewis and Clark and a more recent adventure by William Least Heat-Moon who travelled by conventional boat from Hudson Bay to the Pacific – River Horse .

My river “life list” is Ohio, Mississippi, Snake, Columbia, and others I’ll have to look up.

Mountains – Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens.  Hoping to visit their interpretive centers while on the Weed Work in Washington.  Amazing to look on the map to see how far away they are and you can still see them.  Drove to Pike’s Peak a few years ago and though it was beautiful, it was incredibly scary and I couldn’t breathe when I got there!  Been there, Done that for Pike’s Peak!!
