...hung a right and headed down and out of town for the beautiful, peaceful wood and water of Amethyst Brook.
The brook was roaring on this day. Possibly the highest levels and flows we've ever seen here, at least in our handful of visits.
This presented a problem on our usual circular route when we found the fording section of the brook completely unfordable; except for a precarious balancing act across a teetering board.
A couple years ago Kelly and I would have chanced it. But not in these baby and doggy bound days.
Better to take the long way back...
...it's a nice day for a walk anyway.
