It's amazing how the impact of wading a creek has on life. She is a third year Phd student in biology at the University of Georgia.
It's a beautiful little creek with all kinds of life including this salamander. The creek is named the South Fork of Sycamore creek. I can see why they call it Sycamore Creek because of all the sycamore trees that line the banks.
The water is fairly cool on this hot summer day. Check-out the clarity of the water. She noted that it appears to be a healthy stream. It's cool what you spot while wading. We found this box turtle wandering the woods, probably looking for a mate.
Lucky for my daughter, she won a National Science Foundation Grant that pays for her Phd schooling.
I must say, I give thanks to this creek........
