Tilt

By Ann Driggers

The Summer Solstice is upon us. Sun high and bright in the sky. What better way to celebrate the longest day of the year than an evening float on the Roaring Fork.

I ply the oars, trying to read the water with a fisherman's mind. Let's just say it's a work in progress with a lot of opportunity to improve. What I have learned - lining up for the funnest ride down the rapids is *not* the best way to position the boat for fly fishing. Still, just being on the water for a three whole hours, after work, is to be savored.

As we pull in to the take-out, the last of the Sun's rays warm the western sky and the Earth has tilted and begun the slow slide of shorter days towards Fall.

Happy Summer Solstice!
