A view of one of the mountain streams, as seen from Birch Lake Road within the Christmas Mountains. Despite doing some research, I was unable to locate the name of this stream.
There is something about the tall, skinny spruce trees that always brings to mind the concept of "wilderness" for me. I love how the spruce trees surround the stream, stretching off in to the distance. The height of these trees can be deceiving...this stream was nearly 200 feet below the roadside.
