What winter here is complete without a walk to the creek and a picture of Ellen down there? None that I know of.
I love how clear the water is this time of year. There is still a thin layer of algae on the rocks, which gives it that gold/brown color. Following in Ellen's footsteps as we waded in the water I could track her because everywhere she had stepped the rocks were gray; her boots had cleaned the algae off of the rocks.
