Metal Outrun on Water

This hike to the waterfall was framed by metal: leaking tank at the trailhead, rusted pipe slashing down the hill, handrail to provide sense of safety at the sheer edge of wonder. I loved the rust of the great pipe, some kind of mighty endeavor, a harsh mineral intrusion that was now being assimilated by animal and vegetable. I look forward to the handrail meeting the same fate, collapsing out of vision so we can scrabble up the rock with a clear sense of height and yawning space and feel a little more sharply that compelling call to motion that thunders in great falls.

  3. I like how cold metal fits in nature, and I would love to bathe in last one’s water.

    Keep up the beautiful work.
