I did a little snowshoeing with Mayu on my back close to home recently. We came across a tiny little stream where I've seen some little brookies in the past. After carefully looking around for a while we saw 4 small brookies in one little pool. They were a little spooky and difficult to see so I wasn't able to get any decent pics of them. I don't know how they are able to survive the winter or even the summer for that matter in such a tiny trickle of a stream but they do. I wonder if a few little changes to the stream to create more pools or adding some structure would help them out. They seem to be making it on their own and I wouldn't want to do anything that would adversely affect them.
