As I mentioned yesterday, we had a bit of rain on Tuesday. It is good news because we are way behind on our seasonal rainfall totals, but I'm sure we need a lot more to bring our reservoirs up to optimum levels.

Kinney Creek was a delight on Tuesday. Yup, I was out there in the rain getting soaked, trying my best to keep my camera dry with a towel. I surmised the flow wasn't going to last long after the rain stopped, thus a need for an immediacy. Code 3 as the cops would say; lights and siren...

But this set of photos is from the major creek and falls in the area--Cataract Creek which flows all year to one extent or another. The liveliness of these falls and the fullness of the creek surprised me when I visited Wednesday, one day after our big day of rain. Mount Tamalpais often astonishes me!

The header photo is stupendous with an obvious feminine look to it. That should be entered into your next fair competition. Well done Mr. K.

Thanks GREGORY URBANO. Appreciate the compliment but really, I can't take credit for all of Mother Nature's beauty...

And yeah, SINBAD'S DAD (JOHN) -- well it's early but I guess we know where your head is this morning. But yes, I sort of noticed the same thing--LOL, as they say.
