Middle Prong Little River is in constant change. This day, after a day of raining, the water flow is up to normal where the day before it was a trickle. Its flow rolls small pebbles further down stream while going over or around others. The forest around it too, is in transition. Its leaves are slowly changing to their showy autumn splendor, or have already died and fell off. The Forest floor will soon be changing too, from a time when its minerals and nourishments are about depleted; to a time when the falls decaying leaves replenish its needs….. We go through transitions every day; some are wonderful as falls glorious display or bad like the decaying leaves. We have choices to make, like the stream we can change the path we’re on or simply overcome the obstacles facing us. We sometimes don’t have a choice in the change as in the death of a loved one. Throughout them all we must be like the mountain stream and move on. For if the stream don’t move on, it become stagnate and filled with unpleasantness…………Middle Prong Little River is located in the Tremont area of the Great Smoky Mountains
