 From a distance the pools below the falls look unchanged.

 But up close you see a different story.  In the middle it is still deep, but there is a fan shaped perimeter of rock and gravel.  Last December we got a gully washer on the ranch and apparently it gouged out the creek upstream and deposited it here.  

When we first discovered this we were a bit saddened as we loved the depth and dark mystery of this spot.  But then we realized it is kind of nice to be able to wade around the edges and the water is a few degrees warmer, which is a good thing when you go swimming.

Sometimes change comes by force and other times by choice.  But either way there is always an adjustment that needs to be made.  To resist is futile for change is inevitable. 

Right now we made a change by choice.  We aren't on the ranch.   While we are happy to be out hiking for another 200 miles in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, we are also a bit sad to to be away from our beloved home.  

Such is life.

See you in September.  :-)

"All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another."
