This is McDonald Falls, in Glacier National Park. It's about as rural as you can get.

Rural is my "back yard". This is the area where I kayak. Ocean temps are still a bit cool, but, should warm up next few weeks.

What are the rules about photoshop? I have a picture I would like to use, but it does have some editing done to it.

Photoshop is fine.
Two rules in this contest: 1. you must be the photographer, 2. one entry per month (but you can change it, whatever is standing at the end is what will be in the vote thread).
One guideline: try to make the image a recent one--not set in stone, if you want to post an image from twenty years ago it's up to you.
