  2. It’s a beautiful little canyon for sure and I do spend a lot of time there myself. The whole trail is about 6 miles long, going from about 2700 feet to 6900 feet along Spring Creek, much of it through a cedar forest. It starts only four miles from my house, so I can go there often and hike as far up as I have time for: it’s all beautiful.

  3. I’m always drawn to water. It is the source of life. This is yet another beautiful shot you have taken!

  4. Yes, it’s these little streams that keep making life possible. I wish everyone would appreciate them and understand their importance. They are a gift from the wild country.

  5. Wow. Amazing shot. Did you do that with some prolonged exposure? I love it. I have a kodak point and shoot. Would it be possible for me to do something like that, or do I need a more advanced camera?

  6. Thanks, Scienceguy! The exposure for this was .1 sec at f/8, ISO 64. The light conditions were very tricky, so camera adjustments would be needed. By the way, if you look at a photo on Flickr, at the right side of the page you will see “additional information” and under that, “More properties”. If you click on that it will show all of the camera settings that were used for the photo. (If you click on one of my photos on my blog page, it will take you to that photo on my Flickr site.)

  7. does the road in the previous pict lead here? either one of these last two pictures…I sure “wish I was there”! both places look so beautiful, so peaceful…sure could use some of that right now!

  8. No, the road doesn’t lead to Spring Creek, but it’s only 4 miles away. The creek photo is about 2 miles up the trail and it is very quiet there, with the stream and the wind in the trees the only sounds you would hear.

    We all need places like that to visit. I think I do more than most. They are reminders, glimpses, of things the way they really should be.

  9. You can’t ask for much more Terry, flowing water and fall color, what a combination !!

  10. I wanted to see if the creek was still flowing and was surprised that about the only thing that had turned color in there so far was the Devil’s Club. You’re right, it did make a great combination.
