Unnamed Creek, Negro Bar State Park

The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge for the week of December 2, 2016.

What kind of image might help you relax? Maybe it’s an easy chair and blanket, a serene glimpse of nature, or a steaming cup of tea. Whatever it may be, please share yours and help your fellow bloggers relax!

100_1923This is one of my favorite spots in the park, on the Pioneer Express Trail, with a wooden bridge crossing this creek. Nobody seems to know the name of the creek, including the park rangers; but it’s been there for as long as I can remember.




For most of the last five years, during our drought, this creek’s flow has been reduced, at times to a mere trickle, barely even noticeable.  But after the recent rains it’s back to its energetic, rushing self and the sight and sound of it makes me ridiculously happy and relaxed.
