Shotpouch Creek runs through the eastern section of the Shotpouch property, an old growth hilly forest, meadow and creek west of Corvallis, Oregon. This section of the creek is nearest the cabin. The creek, in the spring, is loud, heard clearly from the one cabin on the property. Other sections of the creek are out of human sight, without banks for human feet. We stood out on a small, short natural pier jutting into the creek to experience the rushing of the water close to our bodies (from the feet up of course) and the precariousness a thin branch, or leaf might assume as it falls out of control into the water, not yet in the water.
Occurence: 2009, Body Habitat projects weekend residency @ Shotpouch Creek Cabin, Oregon, for the Trillium Project.
