Friday on the Flume Trail




Imagine my delight this morning when I heard the snow melt running in the creek!  Dry Fork Canyon doesn't have water all year long, only in the spring.  Later in the year the water disappears into the "sinks" and then shows up in Ashley Creek further downstream.  It's such a lovely sound and makes the hike even more pleasant.


Skipper enjoys being able to get a drink now and then too.


There are two bridges in the first 1.5 mile stretch of the trail.  This is the first one.


This is the second one.


And this is the end of our walk for today.

The first image evokes a waiting wonderful wilderness inviting you to set out on its trail. My favorite shot is the first one of the bridge. Its composition carries a dramatic, almost surreal sense of a still span and serene sky contrasting with vividly dimensional rushing water.

I always love walking along running water. Beautiful sounds, more wildflowers, and more likelihood of seeing wildlife. Daisy prefers it, too.

The first photo is so pretty, even with the muddy waters.
