Update 11/5

Since my last visit to Centennial Brooke, the trees have lost many more leaves than I anticipated. The ground is covered in leaf litter from the variety of deciduous trees surrounding the area, making the ground a whole shade lighter. The ferns are still very vibrantly green, so I find myself wondering about their tolerance to cold and what will happen come frost. There were many birds chirping above me, in a variety of tones and patterns. The Brooke’s water has extended much further into the ravine than when I was here last. I expect that it will extend even closer to the tree-line as the rainy season takes full effect. The wildflowers around the inner bank wetland have all begun to die out. I expect that next time I return the changes will be even more drastic.
