My camera was set to focus on a stationary object instead of a moving one. I really screwed up big time, because this is a Golden Eagle and the only other pic I got of it was about 1/2 mile high. This is the first time I have ever seen a Golden Eagle in this area.
I hope I see the Golden Eagle on my next trip...
I can see why you like this area so much. Wonder what the deal is with those rocks with 'perfect' holes are?
The holes are formed at the base of a waterfall, from water cascading over the falls and gouging out the rocks below. It took me few trips into the park to figure out what caused these holes. In a few places in the park there are some that you can stand in. At the bottom of most of the waterfalls in the park the holes are still being formed today. The holes in the pictures are from millions of years ago when the creek bed was hundreds of feet higher. There are hundreds of hollows in the park... and if you listen close enough, each one has it's own story to tell. I plan to spend the rest of my life wandering the hills and hollows in the park.
Thanks. Those holes just seemed "too perfect". So I was wondering if there weren't some century old manufacturing type thing going on there, or from the Indians. The natural forming would also make sense too. Irrespective, all very interesting.
Yes, my first impressions of the holes where that they might have been formed by the indigenous people that inhabited the area. But after seeing so many of them and most all of them in stream beds, told me the real story of how they formed. If you or anyone else here, ever get the notion to come and check out the park... let me know and I'll point you in the right direction.
Thanks for sharing your pictures
I'm all packed and heading back in the morning to MCNP, for another 2 week hike in the deep woods. I should have better weather on this trip, at least the nights are gonna be a bit warmer. I just hate walking around in the rain with wet and muddy feet but, it sure beats working.
I'm trying an easier way to post pics. Hope this works, if not I'll keep trying.
