Lakes and Creeks

Lakes, creeks, rivers, ponds, streams. Just about anything wet that isn’t the sea.

My campsite by Table Rock Lake – It’s a shame my stay was cut short by my COVID-19 vaccination appointment.

Clouds – I was hoping for a nice, as in flaming oranges and yellows, sunset. It didn’t happen, but this cloud formation and an otter made up for it. One-minute read

Wind on Table Rock Lake – I feel like I’m home when I get to this view.

Large pool on Piney Creek – I didn’t check how deep, but judging by the color, a few feet.

Piny Creek glinting in the sun – you can get a clear idea of how narrow the hollow gets from this picture. Can’t find the trail? hike down the creek.

Piney Creek – the start of Day Two.

Back on the Piney Creek Trail – it’s a 20′-30′ drop to the creek. I was looking for good camping spots. The best are probably at the very start of the Piney Creek Trail. The trail is overgrown and difficult to follow in many places. +1

Long Creek Falls – The falls were dry as expected, but there was plenty of water in the pools. 2 pictures

Morning mist on Table Rock Lake – I wasn’t totally surprised to find mist drifting down from Piney Creek when I woke up. I ‘d seen the same thing happen in much colder conditions in January. I checked the water temperature and it was still warm(-ish) so I had a swim. Who could tun down such an opportunity? Piney Creek Wilderness – Day Three. 2 pictures
