Yes indeed -- the Devil has his own creek.   It's a tributary of the mighty Lagunitas Creek and drains the northwestern slopes of Mount Barnabe.   I haven't got a clue how it got it's name.

It's full of devilish bubbles...

And full of devilish swirls...

I was looking for temptation, but didn't find any.

Donald, I've missed your photos while on vacation. These are gorgeous. The colors are subtle and rich, very California summer style.

There are so many "Devil's Whatevers." Makes one wonder how any of them got their name. I recently learned that Devil's Lake in North Dakota is salty. Your creek looks pretty fresh. But no temptations? I would have been at least tempted to go wading..
