Well, I guess it's safe to say you have never tried to cross a moving stream
in your bare feet. The slipperyness of the rocks on the bottom is algae. I'
ve seen very few nutrient-rich streams where it didn't grow, even fast-moving
ones. The Boise River cruises, but the bottom has a thin layer of algae on
many of its rocks once you get down around the dairy farms.
