Thorne River Ghosts

August 13, 2007

“I once had seen a ghost, and the ghost again possessed me.”
-Norman Maclean, Young Men and Fire

The setting sun made the old growth glow.

Beside the deer and the beaver and a small native cutthroat trout; beside the bear that convinced me to leave and the salmon he was after; beside the tannin-stained water and the caddis swarm the trout was after; beside the purple flowers I have never seen and the black moss and the raspberries; even beside all of this, the setting sun made the old growth glow.
