Upper Reaches of Willits Creek

This morning I scrambled up and down the banks of a section of the upper reaches of Willits Creek with fellow photographer David Smith.It was just beautiful. Big Leaf Maples are just starting to turn and there was that nip in the air that really tells you that we are entering the fall season. Though it's still not cold enough to convince me to wear long pants yet! It was also nice to see the creek had a little flow in it from the rains we had last week. Water flows in this creek are critical to both salmon and steelhead which will be using this creek for spawning in the next few months. It's just incredible to see a fifteen pound salmon fighting its way up this creek.I'm looking forward to seeing that again. God gives us so many gifts to see and experience every day. His light and love to all, chris


  1. Oh, beautiful place. It is unfortunate that in my country is so cloudy now. And in your photos is all so unreal .. but wonderful.

  2. It is indeed a beautiful place Black Cat. My favorite time to photograph this creek is either before the sunlight reaches it early in the morning or on days when it is foggy or cloudy! Thank you very much for stopping by to view my photoblog and leaving your comment.
