Sue and I took a day to relax by a stream and draw, explore and maybe do a little watercolor.
The summer has been so dry in the Adirondacks, one of the driest on record.
This is Roaring Brook in Keene Valley, and it is dry. No water here at all.
Here is where the water should be coming from off of Giant Mountain, but there’s only a trickle of water coming down Roaring Brook Falls, and it drying up before it gets too far.
We did find water, but it was all very low and slow moving.
It was great for exploring for rocks, of which we found some really nice smooth ones to add to our garden collection.
Came across this little frog sitting on a leaf.
