Smith River Canyon

Smith River Canyon


As a child on our trips to the coast, I would press my face against the car window, trying to catch glimpses of deep green pools, far below the narrow winding road.  Last summer, the Smith River Alliance hosted me at their wonderful Rocky Creek Ranch.  Finally, I could dive into and explore that river.  I tried to capture the translucent green of those deep clear waters the attitude of the American Dippers that nest along the canyon walls. There are two!
