This is after a day in Hurricane Creek cleaning out trees.

After cleaning out Hurricane Creek, we then went with Russell and D.D. with a packed lunch to enjoy a part of the creek up stream that wasn’t torn up from the tornado.  Here is a reminder of what that part of the creek looks like now…

And here are pictures from a public park to show what the creek looked like before the storms came through.

This is taken in the middle of the creek. Natural beauty everywhere.

Just another hang out spot in the creek. The history in this meeting place from the past is overwhelming. It is amazing to think of how many people over that centuries have been in this spot.

This is a picture from the cliffs above looking down onto the park and the creek.

We went to a deeper area of the park that Russell knew about. It forced us to really take in our surroundings.
