Silver Creek (Grouse Creek Watershed)

Not much on my radar today. So instead, here are a couple of cool pictures from Silver Creek. Silver Creek is in the Grouse Creek watershed, which is entirely in Kansas but is not really a part of any of the major basin (drains into the Ark just N. of OK line, but isn't in the Walnut, Verdigris, or Neosho). Perhaps because of this, Grouse Creek is one of the most pristine and beautiful streams in Kansas. Silver Creek is a major tributary containing a lot of biodiversity. Unusually for Kansas streams, this stream is pretty nice even in the middle of winter. I would love to get out and visit it in the summer.
