Along the White River
This past week, I took an evening trip up to Silver Springs Campground after work to visit my kids who were camping there for the week. I've camped here several times before, but always enjoy exploring along the river and among the tall trees around the campground.
This year there was a thick haze of smoke from the fires in British Columbia that added a new twist to the experience. It was also record heat as on this day, temperatures climbed up into the mid to high 90s in the Seattle area. All in all a good day to head out of the city and spend some time along a cool river.
Every Spring we wonder how this campground weathered the long wet Winter, and if the river has claimed any of the campsites. Nature is always changing, sometimes subtly, sometimes drastically. Even this old favorite offers a few surprises after all these years.
