Missouri: LaBarque Creek - January

LaBarque Creek, Missouri. January 2015.


My brother has a place with frontage on LaBarque Creek. He tells me that LaBarque Creek is among the top four most pristine waterways in Missouri, and that the state owns a goodly percentage of the stream system in order to protect it.

LaBarque Creek is only a little over six miles long, but it is home to more than 50 species of fish.

My brother and I took a short walk along the creek the other day.

I was, of course, delighted when he noticed the skull overlooking the water.

Do you see the ribbon-like trail marked above, in the sandy stream bed, by some creature?

I like the variety of ice designs above - the speckled surface at the top, the bright lines below on the left, and the crystalline obelisks on the bottom right.
