Yesterday I went up to the #SouthPlatte to take a shot at #fishing in the spring runoff. The high, fast, muddy water puts a lot of people off but, for me, it usually means a good day. The fish hole up in what little shelter the river offers and take flies with very little reservation; they have to decide quickly and that works to the advantage of the fisherman. Yesterday's flow was superlative, though. The water had pushed over its banks at some points and there was very little water that was safe to fish. So, after abandoning my trout dreams I went for a little walk around my favorite #rock#outcropping where the river turns nearly 180 degrees. It has millennia to go before it wears a hole in this oxbow.
designed by Tom Kundig with Principal Steven Rainville, Rimrock is a house that responds to the unique bluff upon which it's situated — at the edge of a volcanic basalt cliff, the T-shaped house straddles two sides of a pre-existing wash, allowing natural animal pathways and prevailing snow drifts to flow under the house (images by @k7scott, more info and images on our website — link in bio)
Good bones are essential to a landscape project. The #Hardscape are the bones that set the stage for landscape and finished plantings. The colors and textures will change with the seasons, but the bones remain stable and settled. Next Spring when the grass is green and the planting’s are popping, this will be a scene to be seen:) #outcropping#stonefacade#limestone
