Hidden Valley April Flowers

 These photos are from mid-April when the colors of Hidden Valley were lavender and gold. From the stunning heather on the hillside.

To the delicate azaleas peaking through the trees.

And the splash of gold along the banks of Wildcat Creek where the daffodils were beginning to bloom.

And the beavers have been hard at work

The violets are especially stunning amid the chips the beavers leave behind. 

Despite the beavers' hard work the rains have washed out the dams. 

The upper and  lower both. 

The heavy rains have also further remodeled the confluence. Hidden Valley changes are always fascinating to observe whether the work of the beavers, the weather, or just the magic of spring.

Until next time.
