Default Icy Rocky Fork

Have enjoyed several recent wintry trips out to Rocky Fork wilderness - mostly to assist with planning for our NEW state park! Low temperatures made for some fascinating icicles.

Some of the smaller and slower streams were quite icy.

But larger streams, with more flow, were pretty much ice free.

Despite the cold, the mosses and lichens are thriving here.

The largest waterfall in this wilderness is found at the northeast corner of Rocky Fork. Here's a small spring on the way to the falls - with the most water I've ever seen in it!

And here's a view of the main falls - also with plenty of flow!

And some rushing water at and below the Triple Falls, right near the main entrance to Rocky Fork.
