At this point two streams actually come together and form a little pool when the water is higher.
|The convergence of Matt's Stream and the Big Stream|
And this is that same spot now. It rained hard for a full day and the steam swelled to snow melt stage.
|Now that's a waterfall!|
|The Big Stream|
|The stream coming down from the property behind Matt's|
|Full of rain run-off|
|This fallen tree is new|
|Back on our property, toward the back edge|
|Matt's little stream|
The house is positioned so that you can hear the water as it travels over the little falls. In the spring (and right now), it is loud enough that it obscures surrounding noise to the point that I can't hear the generator running 300 yards away. It's easier to hear from the Nest, but we actually moved the home site from the originally chosen position to one closer just so that we could hear the stream when we sit on the porch. We can't see it as the stream is down in a fold of the land, but the sound is enough to lull you into a state of total relaxation. Ah, looking forward to those afternoons on the porch!
