Day 183 > Midsummer At Baird Creek
At the height of Summer, the torrent of melt water that rushed through Baird Creek just a few months earlier is replaced by a much gentler flow. All along the creek bed the lower water level exposes the surfaces of the rocks, some of which are embedded with fossils and hunting crayfish scurry between them seeking cover. Looking up the creek, it is seemingly swallowed up by the lush vegetation that overhangs the water and crowds it's edges.
