Dry Creek Bed
My husband and I recently went for a drive, looking for interesting places for pictures. We found a drying out creek bed.
We walked right through the creek where there were dried out spots. It was a curiously dry place, considering we were very close to Lake Erie. But there were spots where there was water. They were interspersed with sections where the water have dried up completely and it smelled of dead fish.
And, of course, there is always something to get right up close to.
