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.

    Clever! ^_^

    Was each link made from two pieces, or was there fill material inside that you removed? I'm having trouble seeing how to print these in a makerbot-compatible way (though I could just be overlooking…

    Nah. It'd just take a dissolvable support material and higher resolution. There are commercial 3d printers out there that can print ball bearing assemblies in one pass, fully assembled.

    Nice! ^_^ I was going to be flabbergasted if you were actually able to print it as a unit, but I guess that would take antigravity.

    I printed each piece individually and assembled them after some cleanup. I did print four segments at a time, though, unattached, in a 2x2 grid.
