    Some more from my Thanksgiving morning road trip. With a lot of rain this week, the Kanawha River was somewhat high. In photos 1 & 2, there is a boat launch and fishing pier, with railings, hidden under all that water. I estimate the river was up 8-9' from normal. It made for some nice waterfalls, however, particularly the bowl-shaped cavern of Cathedral Falls and the smaller roadside waterfall that is usually just a trickle. Minolta MD 24-35mm.

    Thanks Selten. Standing there and taking the photos, and listening to the roar of the water was impressive.
