Rock-Hopping a Creek



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

This picture of my grandson Sean was taken in mid-July. We were on a hike in the Pisgah Forest near Brevard, North Carolina, and came upon this creek that needed to be crossed. I took this picture from a very nice footbridge, but Sean decided it would be more fun to rock-hop across.

It should be cooling to soak the feet inside the water.

Good for him! I'll bet he is an excellent rock hopper.

Oh marvelous! This takes me back to my childhood when my father would build me a rock bridge across streams in the mountains ;--)

I'm sharing a watery photo my sister took in South Bend, Washington at Small Reflections this week ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
