It's amazing to walk along the banks of the Elk River after Labor Day. The water level drops, and the mud dries out. Last weekend we found a shoe, a beer, and this bottle. It's glass. Actual glass. It's as large as a large Gatorade bottle. I wonder what it once held. I wonder if it was thrown from a boat or a pier. I wonder how long this bottle has been drifting along the river. Found objects. So much mystery.
