The daily rains have slowed our progress on the woods trail.
Plus the chainsaw has decided to die twice
and is currently kaput again.
So while trail #1 has finally made a loop,
it requires some acrobatic climbing over downed trees to make the circle.
The other morning when I was having my morning coffee on the back porch,
I heard what sounded like running water.
Since we don't live on a creek,
it meant that our little drainage "stream" and the feeder from our spring
were running fast enough to hear from the house.
It was a sloppy mess in the woods.
I really shouldn't have trod up the trails
but I was oh so curious to see the water levels.
The rains have made everything SO green!
This tree is hanging over the steam bed with all it's might and is almost totally undercut.
I love the triple ledge of rocks at this little "waterfall".....
Sure enough at the confluence of our two streams,
we had whitewater!
Burbling over the stones it was loud enough to hear all the way up at the house.
I'm excited to get some landscaping around the house,
but the woods are delightful and a constant source of new things to see.
