My family lives at 8800 feet elevation, and we are not close to any rivers.  We do have a small creek that runs down from above through our woods, continuing on down the mountain.  I was out there tonight digging  that creek a bit deeper and wider, because we get “ground water” that seeps up into our basement.

As an old mentor of mine would say every once in a great while …
