Just a walk.......

I walked this stream yesterday. I was armed with a camera and a bottle of water. The two weight was at home, and the "bombers" left drying on a table in the garage. This was a day to just walk and view. July was a hot and humid month and that usually spells problems for small streams. This one was in wonderful condition. Its flows were very adequate and there was lots of cover. I did not bring a thermometer to take the water temp, but my arm told me it was fine. As I walked along I noticed the woods were very quiet, and the sounds of the water moving over the stones seemed louder. There were several stops at the runs and pools where I observed shadows darting to safety. This was a wonderful few hours just walking and observing life along a small stream.

  1. Am I correct that this one we've both "walked" before?

  2. Sometimes you need to stop and just observe, a lot can be learned that way plus it's very relaxing. Those old cabins in the woods, people laugh at me but I could live in something like that. Wonderful photos!

  7. Beautiful streamside wander. Thanks for sharing - I, for one, usually can't make it out until the weekends, so this mid-week romp does me good.
