Welcome Back to the Woods

We took a long walk down by the creek today, first time this fall that we've been down to see what's happening along Morgan.  It's been incredibly dry:

The stream bed of the creek that flows from the pond, no water here for months and still no water here.
But the main creek is finally wet again.  Flowing from the two inches of rain that fell over the past week.  Here you can see the water moving.

This is one of my favorite spots, even when there is almost no water, if it's moving, right here there is a joyful noise of trickling water. That sound feeds my soul, especially after a long dry spell.

There are still spiders working the woods, searching for last suppers before the frost. 

The reflections of sky and trees on water, leaves above, leaves below, were spectacular today.
