A Little Rain...
Kentucky Society of Natural History on Friday morning. And...you guessed it, more severe weather in the South, including another inch + of rain. But what's an inch of rain to dedicated Naturalists in a wonderful place like Carter Caves State Park in Kentucky!
John Tierney, park naturalist for many years, leads us to Box Canyon. Water drops from the branches, and hangs from the leaf tips as rainclouds finally blow away and the sun breaks through. After a short but steep climb, we turn the corner to find Box Canyon with a waterfall leaping over the edge, something which would not have happened without all the rain of the last 24 hours. There, we found some good from all the rain after all! Water dripped, dropped, and slid over every rock face, so I was glad to have my rain coat to keep the camera dry.
