Cascades are Running!

So, all of that crazy rain we had Saturday night and Sunday have the Cascades running!
The sound of crashing water fills the woods!
The brooks are burbling away noisily!
Mushrooms have popped up everywhere!
This is summer in the forest!

Our favorite scrap metal hauler dropped by this morning to pick up some heavy gauge material we pulled from a property. Thanks Michelle!
