Waterfall #2

It's still raining. But they're reporting that the water level on Sumas Prairie has dropped about 6 inches, in spite of the rain. A smidgen of good news.

Here's another unnamed waterfall; at least this one falls into Buttle Lake, a lonely lake, and it pours under the road, not over it, flooding no farmlands, no houses. A friendly waterfall.

Tumbling down the mountain, from far above.

There's always a small pool at the bottom.

I stood there on the road, listening to the water; the spray was fresh on my cheeks and smelled of green, of cedars and firs, of wet rock.

Sigue lloviendo. Pero dicen que el agua ha bajado unos 15 cm. en el valle de Sumas. Un poco, un poquito de buenas noticias.

 Y aquí hay otra catarata sin nombre; pero esta cae hasta el lago Buttle, un lago solitario; y fluye por debajo de la carretera, en vez de por encima, y no inunda granjas ni casas.

Me detuve allí al pie de la catarata, escuchando la música del agua; el rocío se sentía fresco en mi cara, y olía a verdor, a cedros y abetos, a roca mojada.

La catarata cae desde muy arriba en la montaña, entre el bosque.
Y siempre hay un pocito en la base.

I'm having to moderate all comments because Blogger seems to have a problem notifying me. Sorry about that. I will review them several times daily, though, until this issue is fixed.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
