Meadow Merges to Forest

Trail Thoughts and Musings

After several contours along the hillside, the trail gently lowers towards Peters Creek. The rolling green carpet of grass laps onto thick forest, much like the ocean onto the cliffs. The differing vegetation gives clues to the varying levels of ground water. The forest, with its greater need for water grows along the creek, while grass controls the drier regions.
