The frosty shore of the creek reminds me that winter has a few more precious weeks to unfold before the spring thaw. Looking into the creek is like viewing layers and layers of color as the water moves through the valley. Gold was once mined from this very creek and at times there will be a glint of light that reminds me of the miners that roamed this valley in search for gold. It has been, "A Painting Day".
