Elwah-the Grace of a River

The Elwah is almost totally free to be the river it once was and to give abundant life again in areas that long ago were silenced. With the success of the demolitions the beautiful grace of the Elwah River will benefit all of us and nature in ways we can’t see yet, but has already started with the work accomplished to date. Here is the link to the awesome National Geographic story published yesterday..it is emotional and wondrous to be sure. Also.. info on the River Walk tours taking place until Sept. 2nd below the photos. Thanks for droppin’ in today and have a super nice one! bb >*<
