Back To The Rogue River

It’s the end of June, and I’m back to the Rogue River.  Water flow is high, over 3,000 cfs coming from the Dam, and near Tou Velle about 3500 cfs.  The weather has been erratic with a few warm days offset by cooler, rainy ones.  I think tubing season is probably one to two weeks away.  The water is still quite cold, about 51-52 at Takelma Park.  I prefer a flow of 53+, so I don’t feel the stinging sensation that comes from cold water.  I offer a few photos of the river and the surrounding flowers near my home and Dodge Bridge.      

About Robert M. Weiss
From an early age, I've taken great pleasure in reading. Also, I learned to play my 78 player when I was quite young, and enjoyed listening to musicals and classical music. I remember sitting on the floor, and following the text and pictures of record readers, which were popular in the 1940s and 50s. My favorites were the Bozo and Disney albums. I also enjoyed watching the slow spinning of 16s as they spun out tales of adventure. I have always been attracted by rivers, and I love to sit on a boulder with my feet in the water, gazing into the mysteries of swirling currents. I especially like inner tubing on the Rogue River in Southern Oregon. Since my early youth, I've been interested in collecting minerals, which have taught me about the wonderful possibilities in colors and forms. Sometimes I try to imagine what the ancient Greeks must have felt when they began to discover physical laws in nature. I also remember that I had a special passion for numbers, and used to construct them out of stones. After teaching Russian for several years, I became a writer, interviewer, editor, and translator. I continue to delight in form, and am a problem solver at heart.
