July . . .

On a very hot July day, what is possibly better than a trip to the river?
My parents live up in the mountains, across two creeks, up a mile of dirt road . . .
. . . dusty, dusty in the summer . . . 

 But once at the river . . . a quiet clear stillness . . . 
 Only a canyon can have . . . 
Then hurrying back down the mountain to build a ladder in the dark
 So we can climb on our roof . . . 
To watch the forth of July fireworks . . .
