These were taken by my daughter at Starved Rock State Park in Utica Illinois.
Since the water is frozen, is calling the blocks of ice pictured a fall a correct discription? :lol:
Maybe past tense - water falled or water felled?
How 'bout "water in suspended animation"? :wink:
Well, I guess this keyboard at home doesn't spell any better than the one I had at work. How about "Frozen Waterfalls." Here's a few more shots.
No matter how you spell it , It is sure some cold water that no one would want to take a shower under , looking at them is a pleasure that warms a person and lets them appreciate the abilities and beauty of nature.
Thanks, Tom, for the nice photos. Do you happen to know a story behind the name of starved rock?
Yes, please and thank you. That will be an interesting story.
PS. Wikipedia calls them "icefalls"
Yes, that's the story that was told to us by our scout master, (many years ago of course.)
The town of Ottawa IL, just up river from the rock, is the resting place of W.D.Boyce, the founder of Boy Scouts of America. This year marks the 100th anniversary of BSA.
Chief Pontiac made good cars, too. :wink: I like his convertibles.
Jimmy, you're a font of knowledge. Fortunately, not a frozen one.
Well, if he was your scoutmaster, he was prolly there for the siege :lol:
Gorgeous pictures, must have been quite an experience.
