Newly Discovered Beauty

Today, I ran across two different news stories that just made me smile. I love natural parks. Waterfalls and quiet natural places are some of my biggest loves. So it was really neat to hear that in my home state they discovered a large previously "lost" waterfall, and a new cavern system.

That's just really nice.

Very nifty =^.^=. The caves are especially cool.

Kind of wondering why they didn't check Google Maps' satellite photos for the falls given the map location before hiking out there, though.

I searched that park using Google Earth's satellite imagery, and I couldn't find it. Not so easy as you might think.

Wonderful.

I really ought to subscribe to National Geographic again sometime; my original, long-time subscription was a continuing gift from my grandfather, a geologist of repute.
