As a child, my feet hopped across the stones
many times...and my brothers and sisters and I
loved to wade in the creek there.
Once, my grandmother slipped off one 
of the stones and fell into the water. 
It wasn't one of those times falling was funny.

These pictures were taken over several seasons...

This photo was taken after a destructive 
storm rolled through earlier in the week.

Lots of flowers and butterflies

I've posted both of these photos of Jewel weed already, but since 
this is the flower that attracts the hundreds of humming birds 
each September, I thought it best to include it again.

Beavers...there are lots and lots of destroyed trees

So that the beavers can build their dams

Beavers can be destructive
