Forest Landscape,painting the sounds of nature

This is the stream that runs through the state park we stay at in the fall in upstate Pa.
We spend the day slowly walking along the stream trying not to alert the trout of our presence,
these are wild fish that hide at the slightest sign of danger.
You take in all the sounds of the forest, from woodpeckers hammering away to grouse drumming and even one year we rescued an injured hawk that couldn't fly. We found a wildlife rehibilitator to make sure the hawk was in good hands.

Our reward for the day are the brightly colored jewels we catch and release back into the stream.
