Returning along Corte Madera Creek, I see the results of the downpour a week ago: wet mud from the flooding of Corte Madera Creek near Trail 12. Insects and a mole have already left their marks -- and larger creatures, their tracks. Winter ants and a fly explore.

Hound's tongue grows in profusion along the creek banks, visited by a native bee. Indian warrior (Pedicularis densiflora is a better name) flourishes beneath the oaks. Corte Madera Creek has returned to its banks, and runs clear and calm, a week after the last rain -- a deluge.

PLEASE HELP! Leave a comment on a photo if you know the ID or have any info to add!
