"By Still Water" Green River Reservoir October 2012

Sunset from basecamp
The first day was PEAK color. Absolutely stunning.
Before the rain and wind........stillness.
Reflections in still water.

This beautiful salamander was in the wood that created the threshold circle. We found him as we were dissembling the circle on the last morning. Small blessings.
