Fresh Start :: Rushing water

This video is special to me for a several reasons:

  1. Dam removal is restoring the ecology and culture to Washington state- my home state.
  2. It reminds me of summer adventures in Rainier National Park and motivates me to head outside more.
  3. Last year I was part of a video project that delved into something related to this topic.  Someday I will share more about the project.
  4. I’m a huge fan of water sports- swimming, sailing, rowing, kyaking etc.  Ironically enough this video features river rapids, which I’m not a fan of, but I blame that on getting trapped under a raft during a rafting accident a couple of years ago.  River rapids aside, I love rivers for their beauty, for giving us life and their ability to take us back to nature.

This film is a new start for rivers in Washington state, for the salmon and demonstrates how we’re looking back on our actions and attempting to restore something that we originally ruined.
