When you’re hiking along a hot, dusty trail on a summer day, it’s always wonderful to come across a cool stream running across your path, bubbling and singing as it drops down to the lake below. The combination of welcoming shade, colorful wildflowers, and sometimes even a few nice, sweet berries makes it possible to continue on down the trail.
