The CREEK

The escarpment ran North-South. This feature was, by any standard, a very small example of two plates in an earthquake shifting – one up, the other down. There was no mistaking it.

And while it was small by earth standards, it was still huge to us puny little human beings – like a 1000 feet high “small”.

Where I intersected the base of the escarpment was on the northern side. Here the climb up would be the greatest.

If memory serves me right, the difference in heighth from the flats of Heart Lake to the top of the escarpment was a whole lot less at the southern end. The upper plateau sloped downward to the South. While the flats gently sloped up as one went south.

The creek flowed to the North.

As I started off, I was still in a nice, pretty grove of aspens. It wasn’t long before I ran into one of the the locals.

I gave him a little, wide berth two to my left. So as to not disturb him, and continued on south.

Soon the aspens ended and the creek became fully enveloped in willows.

As of yet, I hadn’t seen any trail breaking through. One that would climb up the side of the cliffs.

I went South for about 1/2 an hour. Still nothing but dense willows.

The sun was high overhead and lit up the slopes of the cliffs.

At one spot where the willows opened up some, I could see through to a nice little 10-inch step in the creek.

The sun shined through this window of willows onto this tiny little waterfall. And on the pool right below it.

I decided to climb through. Forage through the “jungle” to get a closer look. It looked really, very pretty. Surreal.

Besides, after some time walkin’ out in the open, I was getting a bit hot.

Amongst the willows where it opened up, it was still plenty shady enough for a respite.

It was peaceful in there. Like you were in a mountain greenhouse. I laid back on a little piece of bank and stretched out.

Boy did I let out a huge sigh.

It wasn’t long before I found out just how good an idea this was.

I immediately dozed off.

But! Only for a moment.

I startled awake, and turned to my left. I looked at the light shining at the waterfall and pool.

My head drew back. There was a narrow, misty light from the sun. And “a something” in the pool. Best I can describe it is, like a tiny starburst.

I backed out of the jungle. And I do mean “backed out”.

I shook my head slightly. Was I still maybe dreamin’ as I laid there. I don’t know. And I’ve given up on tryin’ to figure this all out anymore.

“Go w/ the flow.”

“Just be”

“ZEN”

These are my new favorite mottos.

I don’t wanna end up like ol’ Jack –
