In a jam

Remember the “thingamabobs” from this post? It turns out they are there for breaking up debris as it passes over the dam part of the lock & dam. It doesn’t look like the thingamabobs are up to task for this tree.

I took this one not long after I took the sunset photograph from the previous post. It was full on dark by then. I ended up shooting this one from a bit further than I wanted and with a high zoom. The bank going down the lock is made up of 2-3 foot jagged rocks. Twisting an ankle or dropping gear wasn’t the major concern, it was that the rocks get blistering hot during the day, and then at night, all the creepy-crawly snakes and so forth like to climb out of the crevices to warm a little.
