Indian Valley creek flows with rainwater from the nearby hills trickling now, unlike the December torrent of storm water that flooded through the creek combing the plant growth and creek walls and leaving behind old leaves, snapped branches and weathered logs along its course.

On Friday, we had a windy, rain gushed storm and I want to return to the creek and witness it again and see how full the creek might be and what may have been further washed down from the hills to change the flow. Photo by Dawn Marie Carlson.
