Quote of the Week
“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”
―Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
This Week’s Story: The Wild Ones
This week’s story was written by Abby, the second of the 7 daughters.
It was just Becky and I in the front, driving the long dark road home from Salmon. My three little kids snored in their car seats in the back, rocked to sleep by the gentle motion of the car following the winding Salmon River. On winter nights, the mountains on either side of the canyon are monolithic, the little homes with glowing windows reminiscent of porcelain Christmas houses. On such nights when the wind swirls the snow and the desert is empty, I’m grateful to shut the winter outside.
We were just coming up on one of my favorite places, an old homestead that had been built into the wide curve of a hillside along the river canyon, most likely in the days when Highway 93 was just a hardscrabble dirt road. “Grapes of Wrath,” my dad called it. It had been about a decade since anyone lived there. The more recent inhabitants had rapidly absconded with their double-wide after a huge boulder rolled down the mountain in the night and landed at their back door.
