Down in Baxter County

Being fascinated with geography, the earth’s physical beauties continue to mesmerize me.  As wind, heat and water erode valuable topsoil , it exposes clues in the earth’s past like possible  dinosaur habitats.

Watching rivers, themselves, are fascinating because of the excitement they provide for people for whatever reason….fishing, photographing migratory birds, skiing or even….. white-water rafting.

Down in Baxter County

Down in Baxter County where the river turns west,
and cuts a path along the limestone ridge,
the wind’s uncovered dinosaur tracks up along the crest,
down in Baxter County where the river turns west.
The river’s tier of rapids challenge rafters at their best,
and entertain spectators along the bridge,
down in Baxter County where the river turns west
and cuts a path along the limestone ridge.

  1. thanks Jane…..sorry, I like rivers a lot….usually a lot of life audio in the form of birds whining and fighting, fish jumping in spots, people’s distant voices, noises from the water crafts, etc. and, of course, the smell is unique….lol thanks for your support
