Horse Creek makes a ridiculous number of bends on its course to the ocean. I saw this place on Google Earth and could not believe it, so, I had to see it. Sure enough, there were lots of amazing twists, turns and bends of every imaginable type winding through open meadows lined with quintessential, ponderosa pine forest. This was the day after a huge downpour of monsoon-season rain in the area caused the creek to double in size overnight. It would take another 24-hours for it to return to normal. It was a very fast-flowing creek and it made me wonder what its personality was like in a drier time.
