Spring Torrent

A lot of water is flowing in the Snake River right now as it passes through Idaho Falls. As I post this picture I am mindful of the many people affected by the flooding along the Mississippi River. Our thoughts and prayers are for you!

    The natural disasters that are hitting our country is unbelievable right now. This show a little of how destructive mother nature can be. Brilliant capture and processing.
