Butternut Creek

We're visiting Syracuse NY and I took this shot of Butternut Creek.
We'd hoped to get over to Silk Creek but it's not looking good.

Dry Creeks

We were very disapponited during our visit to Hamilton to find a
number of the waterfalls and creeks that fed them were dry.

1 & 2: The Devil's Punchbowl Falls and its feeder creek were dry.
3 & 4: Beamer's Falls was almost dry. Only one tiny rivulet trickled down.
5: Felker's Falls was damp, but it may simply have been from the
rain. No visible trickle was seen or heard.

Why are the creeks and their falls dry? Is it climate change? Or a
dry year? They have never been dry before when we've visited at the
same time of year. Where are the fish, crayfish, frogs, turtles,
polliwogs and insects who normally live there and the herons and
raccoons who feed on them?

PS: Witch hazel is in flower at the creek.

A Postcard from Hamilton: At Grindstone Marsh

Blue jay, grey squirrel, mallards and cardinal, all tame because they
were fed by visitors along the Grindstone Marsh trail in Hamilton.
Photos by me (Mary Taitt).

along Tiffany Creek

Yesterday we hiked along Tiffany Creek in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
The Niagara Escarpment runs through Hamilton, so there are many
waterfalls and gorges. See more of the falls along the escarprment.

Two views of Arcata Marsh

It's hard to believe that both these pictures were taken on the same warm day (Saturday), and not very far from each other. They're just different parts of the Arcata Marsh.
