This stream is secret indeed. It usually only shows up in the fall and spring when heavy rains generate lots of run-off from the gentle slopes in our woodlot that run down to a small lake at the bottom of our property. Even though it is almost Christmas we have just had three days of heavy rain and my secret little stream is engorged. It cascades in a myriad of miniature cataracts and falls, as it makes its way to join the already high waters of the lake. The sound of the water fills the air and you can hear it as it grows in volume from the top of the slopes on down. It is magical… and secret.
