Video ID: es009 Title: Summer Alpine Brook, Oregon Location: Oregon, Steens Mountain at 9,000 feet

High above the tree-line, this July brook, which will disappear in August, is fed by melting snow.

A moving cloud ceiling, only a few thousand feet above the land, produces changing patterns of light and shadow.

The sound of the stream includes detailed notes of the foreground riffle.

Although July, at this altitude it is still spring and the breeze ruffles the spring flowers.
