We stood on the banks of Clover Creek, in the depths of a pandemic.

Happily married we may be, but an odd couple we be.

Trees and rocks mirrored in Clover Creek

Clover Creek flows so slowly, grabbing photos of trees mirrored in the water isn’t hard at all. In fact, the trail is a wonderful walk through the woods.

Pete works a picture from all angles to get the picture just right. Every bend of Clover Creek offers something new to admire.
