After a couple inches of rain Columbia's Flat Branch Creek is swollen and moving fast. This morning I snapped a few pictures of the creek as it moved fast and full through the MKT underpasses just below the MU Power Plant.
Yesterday my friend Andy and I took a walk along the trail in search of morel mushrooms and wildflowers. Alas, we found no morels but did witness several species of ephemeral, spring wildflowers including wild ginger and possibly bluebells. Thanks to that hour of exploration we saw cardinals and several deer hanging out in this small, urban riparian zone.
Update: I found my first ever morel mushroom last weekend just outside Columbia! Where do I get an application for membership in this club?
