Icy Maw

Uploaded by: Fieldofflowers

Tuesday November 19, 2013

Mendota Heights, MN (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: A hidden waterfall becoming visible as the temperature drops. Those signs along the path warning about falling rock turn out not to be blowing steam after all. I heard a crash not too far and witnessed my first landslide in action. Yikes! I'm fine, though do wonder about the future of the path and the apartments that sit precariously above the edge. Some day I fear in the future there will be a news story waiting to happen. For now, we can enjoy the beauty of nature.

Those buildings along that ridge do seem precariously close, don't they?

Thanks. Yeah. Lethal. If not the melting ice chunks, it would be the huge rolling boulders. Any thoughts or urges I had to climb that area were definitely settled. Nope. Won't be doing. But I will be stalking the area to see what forms.

About Fieldofflowers

Fieldofflowers

Every day that I come here, I'm amazed by the awesome photos I see. I love to take photos of whatever catches my eye. Usually my photos have something to do with nature. Insects and flowers have always been a big interest. You can also find me on Flickr. Summer '09 goal: Aiming to take pictures daily, and upload some of my favorites. I hope people enjoy them as much as I do. Most of the time, the fun comes from taking the pictures, more than the actual results. Create your own visitor map! Counter started: 6-21-09
