Decision Time

With the ever present gravity pulling us (LOL), we headed down into the ravine.

We were lucky to find a way down as this part had some pretty steep banks. On the opposite where we had descended, the water was seeping out of the bank.
A Purple Cliff Brake (Pellaea atropurpurea) clung in a precarious location as chunks of the sandy bank had fallen in various spots.

In this section the Purple Cliff Brake (Pellaea atropurpurea) had some help with an assist from the mosses.

A very cool Red Oak with the three trunks coming out of the base!

It looked so interesting ahead! But now we had a decision. Would we try to get through the tangle and the slippery mud at the edge of water?

Hmmm, you will have to wait until tomorrow to find out. 😉
