What an outrageously perfect early summer day!We left the Chetco River Inn and drove up to Prairie Lookout where we could see over to burned over Vulcan Peak and Biscuit Fire area of the Kalmiopsis Wilderness.
This particular video really is like a visual journal. I see I repeated myself once or twice, but just as I don’t polish my journal entries unless I’m going to turn them into something I want to publish, these videos put together on my lap on my iPad Pro in the evening or morning after the adventure have to stand as a way of informally speaking to my world about what I see that is beautiful or important to me in that moment.
Because the moment rushes by, and eventually the video is all the memory I really have left of a unique time spent with friends one summer afternoon way back in June of 2016.
(NOTE: In mid-June 2016, my husband Peter and I along with an artist friend, Charlie Johnston, spent a week at the Chetco River Inn. It is about twenty miles up the Chetco River outside Brookings, Oregon, which is on the border with California. As I often do, I decided to make a series of daily journal videoitos aka digital stories.
This is the last in the series of five.)
