Crellin Park(Chatham)

Rain, rain go away!  We've been inundated by heavy rain the last 24 hours, leading to localized flooding concerns.  I guess we actually needed the rain-although maybe not all at once.  Once the incessant deluge finally tapered off this afternoon, I decided to take a walk at nearby Crellin Park along the banks of the Stony Kill.  There are no marked trails at the park, but there is one main trail and several different footpaths lead along the creek.  Even the runoff on the creek banks is running strong.

 Looking downstream, as the current rushes by.
 Swift waters.
 Early fall colors on the Stony Kill.
 The main path through the very damp woods.
 Once out of the woods and in the open fields, I noticed the winds pick up, making it feel much cooler.  Foliage is a bit behind, with only a hint of color on most trees.  Here is a maple turning red near the pond.
 Beach season is over.
 Foliage is much further advanced in a swampy area near the park road.
Felt good to get out of the house for a bit on this rainy, blustery day.  Walked a little less than a mile total.
