Just thought I’d share this, it’s at the end of our 3 acre property.

That's where I'd keep a chair for morning coffee and an evening smoke.
That's gorgeous!

Beautiful!  My best guess would be that the wildlife and fish like it too!

Thanks for the kind words! We are planning to build here in the future, my goal is to turn it into our little permaculture slice of heaven, we have started to plant a few food bushes and plan to put some different trees there later this year. My goal is to have as many different tree species as I can given the size and zone we are in.

Aside from being picture perfect, I see water and power source using hydro generator (water wheel) and a ram pump to send water to holding tanks/ponds.  You can do a lot with that 3 acres and a water source like that.

What land use occurs upstream?

Upstream there’s a small wilderness park, and then, just  forest 🌳.
 
Story like this gets better after being told a few times. Or maybe it's just a tiny ad:
