Saunter up a quiet valley floor sprinkled with groves of evergreen giants at the foot of the abrupt slopes of Howe Ridge. Following alongside a creek that at times disappears into a subterranean channel, marvel at rippling waters that yield to naked creekbed. While roads lie not far away, the valley exudes a feeling of remoteness and stillness. But look around, for these lush woods are anything but still, harboring a cornucopia of critters from flittering wrens to wintering elk.
