Ancient Forest: Running Water

    Since the Ancient Forest is an Inland Rainforest, you might expect to see a lot of creeks and brooks running through it.  There are a few, but not that many.  Most of the rain that falls is sucked into the mosses and other ground cover and creates a constant flow underground.  It is that underground flow which has enabled the big Cedars to grow and thrive for a thousand years.  
    Even though there is a huge underground flow, there are a few streams above ground.  These babbling brooks, and rocky creeks are a treat to experience both visually and in the sounds they make as they flow around and over the moss covered rocks.  Here are a couple of photos.
