We are pleased to announce that the winner of the Kern River Outfitters Winter River Poetry Contest is:
Snowcapped mountains, blue skies above,
Soft colors of winter that we do love
Beauty, peace, so simply strong,
Relax, enjoy the wondrous song.
Mountain river sounds of rain,
Running wild cannot be tamed.
Beauty whirling to and fro,
Secret whispers we want to know.
Mother Nature at her peak,
Soft hands reaching, find and seek.
A rare gift for those who see,
The real treasures surrounding thee.
Water circling everywhere,
A touch of beauty oh so rare.
Be kind to nature and you will be,
Rewarded greatly, come and see.
Listen closely and you will hear,
The sounds of Spring are drawing near.
