Continued from page 1
On normal rainy day visits, we slipped and slid up hill to house, sideways; car then looking like it had been through a mud bath. But, when creek was up, once past barn, we were only half way there. Then, one watched every step, uphill, to avoid rocks and crevices (where one could twist an ankle) to miss sinking into mud pits.
Uncles, Dad's brothers, came to meet us near barn, to help get little ones and luggage up hill.
But, by time we all made it to house, we were muddy and tired. We didn't walk 5 miles through snow. But, when creek was up, it sure felt like it.
