We live in a region that has multiple ribbons of rivers flowing through. They are there to sustain the crops, irrigate the lands, and provide a habitat for fish and fowl. They are the lifeblood of this arid dry region. I'm fascinated by the various marshes and plants that line the water's edge, taking on different cloaks of color depending on the season. Hope you enjoy this warm summer day along the banks of the Columbia River.
