Happy Fish: Bull Run Powerhouse

Shelley Hershberger "Anything of Nature reflects the viewer, but of all the natural lives, rivers return the surest image of the human."
*John Daniel, The Spirit of Rivers, The Far Corner: Northwestern Views of Land, Life and Literature

At this site, down on the rocky concrete slabs that once protected the river's course from the powerhouse's rushing outflows, there is now a cool, calming stillness. Moss is taking hold; sounds of the mountain's silence prevail. We're doing a good thing here.
