水を見ると心が安らぐ。
そう感じる人は多い。

ただその気持ちに浸るには条件がある。
水をぼう~っと眺める時間と心のゆとりがあること。

豊富な水と豊かな森に囲まれた日本。
しかし、自然の恵みから力を得る余裕がなくなることが多い。

アメリカ・ユタ州にあるトロピカルな川を眺める人は
どんな気持ちでいるんだろう…。

The Narrows in Zion National Park, (near Springdale, Utah) is a section of canyon on the North Fork of the Virgin River. The hike of The Narrows is one of the premier hikes on the Colorado Plateau. The term The Narrows refers to both the through-hike of The Narrows, and to The Narrows themselves, especially the 3.6 miles (5.8 km) long section of canyon between the end of the Riverside Walk Trail and Big Spring. The Narrows lies north of, and upstream of, the main Zion Canyon. Hiking the Narrows was rated # 5 in the National Geographic ranking of America’s Best 100 Adventures.
