“Damp Spring Road”, 12×16 oil on canvas, by Rog Lyngaas, 21apr09, Choate7 palette.
As the snow melts, the erosion increases. Keep in mind, actual snow melt does not damage the environment. But, man’s roads have the potential to erode during snow melt. This increases the silt that ends up in our Salmon streams and rivers. Salmon, to some, is the symbol of life eternal. It is integral to the culture of central Idaho, for sure. So could you do your part and not spin you tires out on the various dirt roads this spring. Idaho does not need any more silt in our rivers. We are dirty sinners enough without your help. Oh yeah, and happy Earth Day!
