    I spent yesterday naked on a rock by a small southwestern river, the dogs sprawled across the sand or cooling it in the shade of coyote willows–does that count?

  2. Does it ever! Way to kick off Rivers Month, Kat!

  3. As posted on Kat’s FB page: #10, #9 and #8 done, #7 daily, #6 done (both Huck Finn, and Junction (which Kat turned me on to)), #5 again this Sept., #4 at least weekly, #3 on wish list, #2 done, but not recently, #1 done!
