Sunday Serenity #47

One of my favorite serenity inducing pastimes is to walk on the paved path next to Bear Creek just outside the perimeter of our trailer park. The following pictures were taken near the beginning of March.

This is Bear Creek, looking north, taken from the Fern Valley Rd bridge 50 yards or so east of the entrance to our trailer park. To the left just out of this shot is the ramp down to the paved path for walkers, joggers, runners, bikers, hikers, rollerbladers that follows Bear Creek from Ashland 20 mi south to Grants Pass about 20 mi north. Ummm. I'm grossly estimating that mileage. As I'm not a driver, I don't keep track. And Bear Creek can't run up hill so the path must get along without Bear Creek for a spell at that end.

There were duck swimming in this shot, riding the little rill in the approximate center. I had to zoom to 200% to find them though. I haven't learned how to take a picture with the zoom feature yet. The other side of the creek is an RV park and to the other side of it a strip mall which is next to the I5 freeway.

A stretch of the path, looking back the way we came. Bear Creek is on the left and our trailer park on the right.

See the woodpecker holes?

A smaller creek running into Bear Creek and between two mobile home parks. Ours to the left and a more upscale one to the right. We usually turn around and head back at this point as we've walked over half a mile from the front door.

Pretty pictures, Joy Renee. It must look beautiful in the spring and summer once the leaves are out. :)
