That's a really nice picture of the creek, VT. I've always loved hiking up and down creeks and things. There's so much life to be found in a riparian environment, it's amazing. Too bad that non-native crayfish are destroying Arizona's. *angry fist* It's gotten pretty bad, actually. The Boy Scout camp that I used to work at actually encouraged the campers to find and kill crawdads because the Webber Creek that ran through the camp was getting so chewed up.

Between drought, bark beetles, and crawdads, Arizona's forests have really been taking a beating for the past several years.
