  1. Those photos of the Merced River remind me of some place in Idaho where we used to take Grandma fishing when I was a young kid. She had a hard time keeping us out of the river so she could fish. The water was so warm and clear we liked playing in the shallow areas. Oh to be young again.

  2. Jeannie, thank you for a walk in the park.
