From my sty to yours, with the warmest of wishes that all your Christmas dreams come true. I had thought that the little cottage by the creek in the redwoods would have sold by now and I would be living up in the Pacific Northwest celebrating my first Christmas there. Instead, I was blessed to have been able to enjoy one more winter here on Bear Creek. Now that we've had a semi-decent rainfall totaling more than 8 inches to date, the spawning steelhead should be returning to the creek fairly soon. I am looking forward to watching them spawn in the gravel beds in the pool under the wood bridge that leads into the park. I have to admit, this is my favorite time of year up here and I am enjoying it immensely.
