Madeline Creek is a tributary of the North Fork Skokomish river in the Olympic National Park. It’s pretty typical of small creeks in this area… clogged with logs and such. The shadows and hiding areas provided by the logs and such are great for providing hiding areas for small fish and other water critters.
Also notice the ferns growing on the face of the rock on the right stream bank. That’s also typical of the area.
I took this from a nice bridge only a couple years old … and only one tree had crashed into it, so far. (see below)
