Henry Kyd Douglas, call your office*

After three days of rain Antietam Creek is really "up". It'll take more than the storied "hop, skip, and a jump" of the above named local Confederate luminary, leading citizen, and notable wiseacre, to get across today, or for the next few days for that matter.

Up, muddy, and moving fast!

I'm not the only one that this three day soaking caused to get out and about (zero in on the very center of the image).

This big old black ratsnake took a break from the long wet spell to come out and catch some rays.

Me, the snake, and let's hope the sun, are in no hurry to move on.

Just north of Sharpsburg,

Ranger Mannie

Hey Mannie, you really have some great images on your blog. Ever thought about doing a flickr account?

Thanks for the compliment. I have a tiny flickr presence but as yet totally undeveloped.
