Hi everyone

I am sending this to you all with photos that Dap and I got at Hickory Run State Park last week with Equilibrium and Havotta

I was using my smartphone to take the photos.....

Here they are:

I recall turning off to view a little stream Equill had spied along the way. She's real good at spotting things on the run.

That was the park with the shades of death trail, was it not?

I recall taking this shot. When I first saw you and Dapjwy go behind some trees I thought mother nature was calling but once I met up with the two of you I realized you both had hid behind the trees so I could get a natural shot without you. It was like watching you two playing hide and seek! Thank you both for being so considerate.

One of the boulders. I just couldn't slip it into the trunk.

My waterfall shots are no where NEAR as rushing as the shots you took! Was there another falls beyond the first set where Dapjwy and I stood?
Did I miss the Biggie or were those taken when there was more water flowing sometime in the past? None the less, the shots you have are pretty darn GOOD!

We *are* considerate that way...and considerate enough not to give into the call of nature with you just a bit down the trail from us!

I *love* the shot of the "Shades of Death" sign...there is something about it that looks old-fashioned and a little ominous!

...and your waterfall is none-too-shabby...it rivals what dapsguy took. (Although you are right; I am impressed with the shots he got from his phone!)

Thank you! I switched into a different camera setting before taking that shot. Sometimes .....They work out. That time..... It did!

Nice shots all, I really like the craftsmanship/ingenuity of the hand built stone dams.

Figures you would take notice of something like that being a hands on type of guy yourself. They must have re routed the creek for a while to create something like that wouldn't you say?

And here's the beginning of the photos I've got for Hickory Run starting with some turkeys we saw on the drive to the park entrance.
