It's been a magical few days here. The rain stopped suddenly and brought enough sun to start melting the snow on top of the mountain.
We love this time of year. The snow melt floods the creek underneath our windows. The rushing water is so loud it reminds us of being at the ocean.
When we bought the property in 2004, it hadn't been lived on or tended for several years. The previous owners had used the creek as a garbage dump. After we finished remodeling the house in 2006, we hired three guys to help us clear brush, remove trash and make trails through the woods.
The guys cut a trail from the house up to the art studio that runs right next to the creek. We put in several stone bridges and a bench or two along the way. I wish you could see it the way I see it, this video just doesn't even begin to tell the story.
