On Wednesday, in the early morning, I walked up Clark Creek to the natural bridge at Lost Valley. What a beautiful morning with a few Service Berry, and Shadbush (Popcorn) trees busting out in bloom. Some clear water flowing to the point where it usually goes underground in the Clark Creek creek-bed. Temperatures were in the 60s and sunny.

By 4 PM Severe Thunderstorms broke out in multiple lines. We had 7 Severe thunderstorm warnings that afternoon and evening. The first was at 4:30 PM and the last at 3 AM the next day, Thursday. WOW, how lucky I was not to received any major damage !

I started the day at Lost Valley; with flurries and low 20’s after a night of high North winds. Over at Lost Valley the water was running well in Clark Creek and the Beech Tees offered a nice contrast:

While hiking Lost Valley in the Buffalo River Valley, (which is a paradise of trilliums) I came across a small patch of these white and pink flowers, not far from thousands of Red-maroon Trilliums. This is a variation of the large petalled white trillium. Photo taken by my sister 4/16/14:

Got 2 inches of rain last evening and some Severe Storms in the area. Reached about 70F on Tuesday prior to the storms around 5 PM until 7:30 PM. Got up early this morning and drove to Lost Valley to check on Clark Creek and Eden Falls. Aside from the sleet, accumulating at times and the windy cold weather (near freezing), it was beautiful. Hiked the 2.6 mile loop to Cob Cave before 10 AM.

There were about 120-150 Elk in the Boxley Valley bottom fields; it’s probably their instincts to get to higher ground during heavy rainfall.

The Boxley Mill Pond has been filled again and the beavers have reconstructed a large Dam and repaired their lodge just upstream from the dam:
