| Bill Trout, River Master

An interest hatched at age 10 became
a life-long obsession. by Eric J. Wallace

and Monica Sheppard

Photographer Chuck Blackley on this shot of
West Virginia's Seneca Rocks: "As I crested a
hill on U.S. 33, I saw the field engulfed in wild
mustard. As the sun began to light the rocks, I
set the tripod so the blooms would be detailed
and the blue sky would provide space for text."
