Cold Waters Torrent [NEW]
Still waters run deep is a proverb of Latin origin now commonly taken to mean that a placid exterior hides a passionate or subtle nature. Formerly it also carried the warning that silent people are dangerous, as in Suffolk's comment on a fellow lord in William Shakespeare's play Henry VI part 2:

From catching fish and walking the many trails in the area, to taking a dip in the crystal-clear waters and setting up a mini bonfire to roast marshmallows at nighttime, Totaranui Beach promises fun for the whole family.
We initially only found a male Torrent Duck and later on, only a female. The female was really tough to film and we had to crawl across a broken bridge, navigate a swarm of stinging bees, run through mud and squeeze through barbed wire. All just to get a glimpse of her. Aderman was livered (as evidenced in the below video). But boy am I glad we went to hell and back to get the shots. Because after we found that female she led us right to a male. And did they put on a show! The couple engaged in a beautiful display as another pair of ducks entered their territory. They then proceeded to drive the other ducks off. Funnily enough it was the female that was most aggressive, charging through the violent waters and viciously biting the other birds.
At least 18 people have died in the storms battering the state. The figure is likely to rise, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Tuesday during a visit to the scenic town of Capitola, just up the Santa Cruz coast from Rio Del Mar, which was hard hit by flooding creek waters. Raging surf destroyed an iconic pier.
I ran along shore, trying to find a safe place to attempt rescue, but the water was too fast and deep, and it was freezing cold. Without a lifejacket, my own survival would be questionable. I finally gave up running, as the terrain made it impossible for me to keep up with the unconscious girl.
Torrent ducks are a sight to behold as they are endemic to the Andean region and are considered one of only three ducks in the entire world that are able to adapt to such extreme cold conditions. Want to take a peek? These cuties reside in the cold streams and lakes of El Cocuy and look like beautiful fur-balls up-close. And with the females being just as colorful and outfitted as their male counterparts, both sexes of these ducks are a must-see.
The Carpina torrent , a left tributary of the Tiber, draws a magical scenario with its winding course: a still uncontaminated environment, rich in botanical emergencies (now rare plants such as the black alder and holly) and landscape (cascades in series, natural pools , wooden bridges, old mills).
Eddies, jumps and softer sections alternate in its path giving life to waterfalls and pools also suitable for torrenting bathing. With its extraordinarily clear and cold waters , the Carpina stream is particularly loved by the Pietralunghesi and by tourists on hot summer afternoons.

Perhaps to emphasize the always cool or cold temperatures fueled by the winds that come from the magnificent Great Sassière (3751m), maximum peak of this long and lonely valley, but also the highest elevation between the Gran Paradiso (4061m) and the Group of Mount Blanc (4810m), with the Aiguille des Glaciers (3817m), but in fact it is also and above all a green valley, where this color abounds everywhere from the grasslands of the plains to the edge of the its glaciers. Takes origin from valley floor nearby the little Hamlet of Leverogne or Liverogne (L'Eyvies or Waters "mangy", that impetuous) South of Dora Baltea Stream and salt winning one bastion below the Tower of Montmayeur or Mont Majeur, also known as the Tower of Arboé or Haury and yet told of Anry, famous for its terrible and horrifying legends (from the rock were thrown the hated enemies or sentenced horrid below), then, before, the valley is wedged in the course of the homonymous Dora and, after, progressively opening in a plain, which starts offering views of the entire and semi complete Group of Testa (Head) del Rutor (3486m).
Leaving on the right (West) on the great Vallon of Planaval-Fond continues more open and, after several villages, reaches Valgrisenche, its Chief Town at the foot of the Dam Beauregard, being closed to the danger due to landslides on its slopes. Remains of its waters still bury the old Village Fornet, once the center of life fruitful and where bread was cooked twice in each year; the new Fornet (1726m) was then built just upstream the tributary of artificial lake. Two side streets surround it: the first fraction from the salt on his Eastern side of Mondanges Fraction is currently closed to traffic for these reasons. The second runs along the opposite side to reach the small Villages of Bonne and Menthieu and then dropped to Surrier and Us(s)ellières Pastures, where he started on the path to Mario Bezzi Shelter at Vaudet Alp (2284m), located at the Northern foot of the wide Glacier of Glairetta or Gliairetta. Hence descends linearly up to the Planaval Fraction (1557m) (now in Arvier Commune) with its 13th century castle where it is "married" with the Torrent de Fond coming from the homonymous lake (2439m) at the foot of the North-east glaciers of Rutor and at the large Eastern Wall of Mont Paramont (3300m).Above reigns Great Sassière. They say that this is the most panoramic of the Valley and that from its top you can see over 1000 mountains and 230 glaciers.

Rhyacotriton, or Torrent Salamanders, have a maximum snout to vent size of 6cm, and are adapted to life in very cold, fast moving waters, making them very susceptible to heat, with temperatures above 28C being fatal. These salamanders are also closely tied to old-growth forest and are very susceptible to logging, making them a useful biological indicator of the recovery of degraded forests.
