The recent rains have not only brought green life to the hills, but also it has brought the creeks up from almost dormant to overflowing. There is nothing lovelier than the Hill Country creeks when they are flowing. Unfortunately I was not rewarded with photo opportunities as there is no place to stop along the road. I knew better than to pull into the grass that grew right up to the road - I was wearing sandals and didn't want to meet a snake and I knew how wet the ground had to be and didn't want to describe to someone where I was so they could come pull me out of the mud!
But this one creek was pretty good size and had a nice bridge over it. I pulled over onto a bare spot that looked dry enough and walked back to get pictures. Prior to the rains this was probably just a small trickle falling over the dam.
