Streambed Colors, Glacier National Park . . . On the road in the American Northwest.

On the Sound of rushing
Mountain Water . . .

If someone were to come back to the Glacier area from 100
years ago, the first thing they might notice come the end of
September would be an eerie silence. With mountain spring
coming two or three weeks earlier than in the past, streams
normally fed by snowmelt towards the end of summer and
early fall now tend to be dry and mute.

Walking the land resonant with this unnatural silence, I kept
asking myself, "Is this what is going to happen to the Alps, as
well? Will they, too, begin to dry up?"
