GINTA: Legacy matters — Why our beautiful world deserves the best

(Image: Kent Simmons, CFJC)

IT HAD RAINED ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT and the woods were alive with bird songs in early morning when dog and I headed out for a hike in our beloved Peterson Creek Park.

The rain made the forest look alive, eager to turn greener yet. The creek rushed in loudly churning foamy dollops and we breathed in the fresh, after-rain air.

Far across the river, the grasslands were a sight to behold: fresh green hues mixed in with last year’s dry grasses, morning clouds hanging low and promising of more rain yet.

On Sunday morning we stopped by Overlanders Beach: blue skies above fast-moving waters carrying logs and mounds of muddy foam, geese floating down the stream and gulls lined up on a sandy mound not yet covered by the water. Simple, repetitive and beautiful reminders of nature’s compliance with the seasons.
