Summer on the River Arazas

Summer on the River ArazasSummer on the River ArazasDeep in the towering Spanish Pyrenees, isolated from the already sequestered villages that dot the countryside, the cerulean blue drainage from the glacial summits feeds the Rio Arazas. Long before ancient wanderers settled the area the steady flow from the snow-capped summits summer melt has fed this river that marks the bottom of the cavernous Ordesa Valley. Flanked by towering cliffs created from a millennium of erosion the river descends ceaselessly for 15km over waterfalls and cascades, sustaining a comparatively young verdant forest, until it empties into the mighty Rio Ara.

With the warmth of the late afternoon summer sun at my back, I stood on the banks of the river and meditated in wonder once again about the extraordinary power of God to create such a masterpiece. In quiet humility, I once again thanked Him for allowing me the privilege to be witness to such glory. I am blessed to be His scribe.
