Last weekend my friend came up from the hotter part of the state in hopes of cooling off a bit and doing some fly fishing. The weather was not cool at all with the thermometer hitting 100 degrees both days! However, mountain streams are cool and refreshing and she was able to wet her line in a couple of them over the weekend.

 

Saturday afternoon’s creek

 

A nice deep pool

 

Sam enjoyed the cold clear water

 

Pine drops, Pterospora andromedea

 

According to the USFS, Pinedrops is a member of the Indian-pipe family  (Monotropaceae). Pinedrops is a root parasite, depending on its association  with a mycorrhizal fungus that is also associated with a pine tree. Pinedrops produces  very little chlorophyll and is therefore not green in color and does not  conduct photosynthesis.

 

Sunday morning creek. The dogs didn’t get to go this time.

 

This water was even colder than the previous day’s water.

 

I was fascinated by the patterns of water and rocks

 

 

Cold foot

 

I played with capturing moving water although I had left my tripod at home.

 

There is an insect inside that tiny bundle of sticks and stuff

 

 

 

 

A cutthroat, caught and released.
