I like to go to the local parks throughout the season to see all of the changes that occurs in the plant grow and to see what new things I can discover. It seems there is always something different to see on each visit.
Since we had a terrible storm this summer I did not know what to expect on this particular visit. Thankfully there was not to much wind damage. A few toppled trees and some washed out paths.
When you are walking the trails at Cedar Falls it is easy for you to imagine yourself walking back in time to when the Native Americans travels through. Everything looks primitive and peaceful walking along the trials where cliffs and giant boulders have been for millions of years.
Water has worn rocks into all shapes as it has carved falls and solid rock creek beds as it travels down the valleys into Queer Creek.
Older decaying trees that have fallen are going back to nature and growing an array of fungi and lichens.
The creek was low on this day but there had been a hard rain just before my visit so the water was mudding.
On this day the many visitors were looking at the giant falls and the rock walls and boulders all along the trail.
They all were rushing around and looking up and not noticing the smaller things that can be spotted it you really look as you are walking along…….
