World Water Day

In recognition of World Water Day, I thought I’d share a sampling of images illustrating our abundant freshwater resources.  Each provides us with not only that life-sustaining liquid, but also dramatically adds to the scenic landscape in which we live while offering seemingly unlimited recreational opportunities throughout the year.
