They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cockís wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

Nice shots.. Are they on Walnut, John? They look that way to me.

On Walnut, down on the fist significant bend below the bridge on Old Sterrettania Rd, there's a small trib that comes in from the WSW (I think, anyhow left bank as you face downstream..) and falls off a 6 0r 7 foot high shale ledge. Some of the most beautiful winter pics I've taken in the entire watershed were there. This was many years ago, when I was living on the ancestral homestead in the area.

At the time (this was in the 70's and 80's), Walnut Creek was a "Second Tier" (moderate priority) candidate for State Scenic River designation.
30 years later with a casino on the headwaters and pretty much the entire watershed above PA 832 developed, I would imagine its no longer a candidate for this designation. But in its day (and still now, in a scattering of places..) it and much of Elk as well really were pretty places, unique in Pennsylvania..

Nice pics!
