It's Spring
(and I can prove it)
How do I know? Well, first of all, the calendar and all the news papers say it's spring, and I believe everything I read in the newspapers (I also believe in the tooth fairy...but I digress). Besides, when I look around I see that the ice is off the river and that some color is emerging along its banks.

Then, too, the melt off has revealed this lovely leaf that has somehow remained beautiful in spite of being buried in snow for weeks on end.And, of course, I have seen many robins...as well as other migratory birds. But most of all, I know it is spring, because with the snow gone I can see all the crap that my fellow citizens have left for the archaeologists to find. I give you the first can of spring:Paddle safe...

That a boy!!

I spent 30 minutes at Ferry Bluff Canoe put-in and picked up a grocery bag full of crap.

Cans bottles wrappers and the "O" so pleasant diaper.

Paddle on and paddle safe,
