Nature is Alive

full flow with snow in Yellowstone

How charming the contrast of land and water, especially
a temporary island in the flood, with its new and tender shores
of waving outline, so withdrawn yet habitable, above all if it
rises into a hill high above the water and contrasting with it
the more, and if that hill is wooded, suggesting wilderness! Our
vernal lakes have a beauty to my mind which they would not
possess if they were more permanent. Everything is in rapid
flux here, suggesting that Nature is alive to her extremities
and superficies. But this particular phase of beauty is fleeting.
Nature has so many shows for us she cannot afford to give much
time to this.
