COOL RIVER GETAWAY
ON THE MERAMEC RIVER

Some overdue relief from the heat
down by the Meramec River.

This part of the river is usually
frequented by "floaters" in August,
but no canoes can make it through
low waters due to the drought.

Until we get some more rain,
just an occasional "John boat" or kayak
passes on by.

The spring fed river is still cold enough
to chill a watermelon.

And fall flowers have started their show,
with trees beginning to change color.

A warm Spring and hot summer
are moving the seasons ahead of schedule.

What next?

  1. In summer, a watermelon tastes so good...
    It's really sad that the environmental problems are mostly caused by the human being...
