3 Good Things: Recent rains have caused little tributaries to run strong. Top: A stream flowing into the New River runs strong and looks much like flowing chocolate! This rushing noise was the backdrop for a concert in Todd, N.C. where the 87 year old (blind) singer /songwriter /guitarist Doc Watson performed live for a group of about 100 near Todd General Store (Middle Shot.) Bottom: On the way out of the valley, geese frolic in the cool running water. And a good time was had...by all.
