The catalpa blooms are now withered, but what a show that tree provided, just days ago. It’s like lots of little orchids.
Our “home water”, looking upstream to the pool below the island. Yesterday evening I stepped into the river, took this photo and then waded upstream to the island.
One of two fat rainbows caught in the island pool. I can’t tell whether this is a “wild” rainbow, or a hold-over stocker. It could be the latter, as the Bosque stretch doesn’t get a lot of fishing pressure.
The cholla cactus is now blooming.
