More rain, more fun


Morning hike. 2.5 miles roundtrip.

Tulsa had a few more inches of rain in a narrow window of time; perfect conditions for viewing waterfalls. There was a video posted on TUWC's facebook page of the torrent flowing yesterday afternoon at this very spot. By this morning, however, levels were down considerably. I'll give it a day or so more before it's gone again. Like the Lynx, it's gone before you can get a second look.

In the big mountains, small cascades and waterfalls like this one are commonplace. To be a destination on a map, water must dazzle the eye with quantity or gravity. On Turkey Mountain, we are content with the miracle of running water.
