The bright afternoon sun glistens on the waters of the Kanawha River. The faint whine of the hydroelectric turbines are just barely detectable over the roar of the falls. This area of Fayette county is a land of cascading water and the overflow dam that powers the plant enhances that beauty. I could get lost for hours just exploring the details of the falls. In my mind’s eye I see a a group of Shawnee crossing the big river on top of the stones. Their world was a place of wonder. They may even collected freshwater oysters from the pools that collected on rocks of the falls and roasted them in hot coals as they look out at the mighty waters flowing westward to Kentucky, their land of of tomorrow. Looking back at the rocks with my visions of yesterday I wonder who would have been more impressed. The pre-columbian Shawnee examining my ability to capture an image and share it worldwide within seconds or the modern photographer observing Shawnee ability to roam freely with all the riches of the earth at their fingertips?
