A walk in the woods.
The trees on the other bank were reflecting in the river.
Then I tried some long exposure but tight.
I can’t choose!
I did see other things than just water. A great day to bike and walk in the woods.
Lynn and I debated what to hike today, long hike or drive to waterfalls, or shorter hikes… I finally decided. To the top of Table Rock, the guide said it was strenuous and plan for 5 hours as it gains 2000 feet from the start.
After last night’s thunderstorms all the creeks were flowing nicely.
As we climbed, it started getting foggy.
But when we reached Governor’s Rock it had cleared up. I heard voices below us while we rested and Lynn was reminded I have a competitive side, we had gotten an early start and I wanted to be the first to summit today.
Back on the trail and back into the fog.
The overlook on Table Rock
I love fog, but not after hiking for 2.5 hours for an overlook. After a quick lunch, we started back down (it’s an out and back)
I bushwhacked down to the creek to see this water feature.
Pumpkintown is on teh far left, I still haven’t seen Table Rock (it’s behind the clouds) ; )
NEOWISE Comet and lightning in the clouds
The NEOWISE Comet is reflected in Lake Brandt
NEOWISE was discovered in March 2020 and won’t be back for over 6,700 years
When you make the turn on a bike ride and realize you are going to get wet!
Here comes the rain
Woke up to a frosty morning, so a quick drive for pictures.
Like chasing sunsets, the frost was fleeting
Sam holds on as we hit heavy rain and wind while chasing a tornado warning. As soon as a warning was issued we headed towards it, watched the storm from an overpass, then chased east for what was reported as confirmed on the ground…. we stayed at it for a couple of hours, but I didn’t shoot any video for the storm chaser company this time.
