The Sinks and the Rise...
In the picture below, notice the rock at the top of the cavern:
Five days later, when we returned with some friends of Gary's, the water dropped significantly as depicted in the picture below:
The rock at the top of this picture is the same one which I pointed out in the picture previously.
It's amazing that in only five days that much water would travel off the mountain, underground then reappear 1/4 of a mile downstream and then be so low!
The place where the water reappears is called "The Rise." In this area there is a lookout to the water below. I zoomed in on the 8-10 pound trout. You are allowed to feed the fish but you cannot fish in this area. The water is almost calm as it reappears out of the ground in a gentle bubbling fashion. Once in awhile you can see the sand coming up off the bottom where the water comes out of the ground.
On my next blog I will post pictures of Atlantic City at South Pass and an old gold mine called "Miners' Delight." I hope you find it as interesting as I did.
This weekend we are going to Riverton on the motorcycle to see the "Old Car Show."
