There is a stunningly beautiful hike along Wolf Creek in the Umpqua National Forest. The trail follows along the creek closely and so even when you lose sight of it you can still hear it babbling by. At this point in the trail you are walking right next to it. The sunlight was almost directly over us and we could see so much light bouncing of the water, showing the bright green glow of the broad maple tree leaves, while also still feeling the dark, shady moss areas.
This was an mid-October day, and the water levels were as low as they get. The gray rocks without moss are the ones that are underwater many months of the year. This is a brief moment of the life of this creek. The next week heavy rains came and the rocks were once again submerged.
The canvas has been stretched and prepared personally by the artist. All edges are wrapped and secured to the back of the heavy duty stretcher bars. Can be hung without being framed.
