If you are just about anywhere in the Midwest today, chances are you are indoors contemplating the rain-soaked garden outside instead of working in it. I hope that some more pictures from our hike at Devil's Kitchen this past Sunday will brighten your day. What a difference just a few days make in the weather! Note the milky appearance of the water in the runoff creek below the dam. Quite a bit of sediment is being carried downstream to eventually enrich someone's garden or farm field. It will take several weeks of dry weather for the sediment to settle and for the water to clear. Springs feed into the lake itself and keep its deep waters cold enough for even trout to thrive in the hot summer weather this area usually enjoys.
