Up A Creek!
January 2004
Winter storm violence often litters creeks with debris.
Bleached pig skull found wedged among the rocks.
Soil, gravel, decaying vegetation is continually washed downstream.
Decay is a slow process involving many micro-organisms.
Tiny mushrooms sprout along a rain-soaked log.
A Death Cap mushroom's sickly gleam
illuminates the dark forest floor.
The downward rush of water reshapes a creekbed in passing.
Creeks sing with a hundred different voices.
Return to Top.
