From Peak to Creek

The movement of water through the mountains is dramatically visible standing at the trailhead for Little Rock Creek: snowy peaks tower over a green, mossy drainage, leading to the empty shores of Lake Como.

Lake Como is a large reservoir used primarily for irrigation.  I swam in 30 or 40 feet deep water in early summer.

Fall rains and snows are refilling alpine lakes and streams.  I bet the waterfall (above) on Little Rock Creek was a trickle about a month ago.
