Joyful water...

Click for zoom on any photo if you would like to see the microcosm of the stream.

...always dancing...

...glows its colors in the sun...

...flows without cease...

...borrows shadows...


...galaxies of droplets...

...offers stillness.

The sculptural shapes that water makes are endlessly fascinating. Thanks for inviting me in to zoom. Wow!

Thank you! The idea of taking closeups of the stream just came to me as I was having my lunch break beside it. I enjoyed doing it so much that I’d like to continue doing more along the same lines.

Jenny, what part of Deep Creek did you visit to take these beautiful shots.

Al, I followed the Fork Ridge trail down from Clingmans Dome Road to the Deep Creek crossing at the Poke Patch campground. That is where I took the photos.

Sometime you must get a SMHC trip going that would take the group down to the other fork of Deep Creek. Same way you went down Fork Ridge to Deep Creek Gap then right and an easy drop off to the Left Fork. Then maybe explore some and return same way or take the old manway down to the forks of Deep Creek. As a teen this was my trout fishing playground.

Funny you mention that. I’ve been thinking I’d like to explore Left Fork, but it’ll have to wait until I get a knee problem solved. (I’m okay doing trail hikes but not off-trail.) You may have noticed the SMHC just did a trip to Tsali Rock. They left the Fork Ridge trail higher than Deep Creek Gap and dropped into Keg Drive Branch.

A beautiful place .. much prettier than Deep River (which was tame and muddy)

Jenny, I read about the Tsali Rock trip and Ed sent me a few pictures.
