playing God on the waters at Alpine Dam

It is a powerful feeling... Arrive early enough at Alpine Dam and the whole area becomes my domain. My message is one of love and compassion. Deer and ducks make easy converts, but squirrels--well, they just never listen.

Damnation... In earlier times this place was a natural confluence of two streams, one in a steep canyon.  And there are fish, but not in great numbers. No boating, no peeing. No picking your nose! Oh, I suppose there even might be a rule against throwing rocks. Laws of the common man. Citations run about $300 a pop. Telling the ranger you are God doesn't help.

Another mirror image? I like the ripples the best, but both are compelling images. Godlike. :-)

Squirrels are obstinate little devils, arn't they? Beautifully strong graphic images.
