Water Under The Bridge - Madison Street Bridge, Missoula, Montana

“They crossed the rickety bridge... She paused for a moment and contemplated the restless waters. They took to her like a rich tawny wine poured out of some capacious barrel by some high ruthless hand who had suddenly discovered the futility of all riches ...Maybe she was just an imaginative old fool. ...Ah, sure what harm anyway to be guessing at infinite mysteries, and she so small on a mountain road?”
-From the 1953 short story “She Went By Gently” by Paul Vincent Carroll (1900-1968)

(PS: Thankfully, the Clark Fork River started receding after Saturday 12 May 2018!)
