This “50 Things to Love About Rivers” video from American Rivers stole our hearts and guaranteed it will steal yours too. It doesn’t matter if you have kids or not, there may be nothing better than seeing the magic of a river through the eyes of a child.
In this case, it’s energetic 8-year-old Parker exploring the streams and waterways of the Pacific Northwest as he counts down the 50 reasons he loves rivers. But this could be any kid, on any river, enjoying the pure bliss of being outside and experiencing nature. Heck, it could be you. As he splashes in puddles, jumps over logs and runs along riverbanks, you’ll fall in love with rivers all over again.
So get out there, pretend you’re a kid again, and enjoy our waterways any way you can. And if you’re a parent, let your little Parkers run wild and free.
