Cohotate Preserve
8 March 2002 Field Trip

(Cohotate 8 March 2002 -18)  We had to do more than simply acknowledge that the water was flowing down the drainage ditch; we had to take a closer look.  While we find beauty in all of nature, we find a special beauty, when we look more closely.  There is beauty in the way the water flows off the stones, as seen in the upper part of the photo.  The falling water first begins to twist and then to "clump" together as a preparation for its break-up, but the fall here is too short.  There is beauty in the way the water flows into the small pool, forming little ripples that cast interesting sunlight and shadow patterns on the sand and gravel at the bottom of the pool.  We should never get so busy that we fail to enjoy the beauty of God's creation, for it brings peace to our mind, soul, and spirit.
