Misty morning fog evaporates into crisp daylight. A good day for a walk. Dog and I veer off-trail, down-slope, and find a rivulet to follow. On either side the land rises sharply but at the bottom, rivulet becomes braided stream, with sections disappearing, reappearing, disappearing again into a wide flat section of boggy bottom land. The air smells deeply sweet. Bright green moss carpets rocks, stumps, and fallen trees.  A piece of trash emerges here and there, sad testimony to an old neighborhood tradition of dumping refuse into any available gully. This is black bear habitat; I rarely venture to this place in summer months, but on this fine winter day it is paradise, discovered. ~K
