After a very dry January, it seems like we're finally getting our late rains. Nothing is more exciting than watching Strawberry Creek during a storm; stop by and take a peek if you happen to venture outside. One thing to look for are the check dams that are periodically positioned along the creek. Be sure to observe their effects on the depth of the streambed and the steepness of the banks.
