Lake Lure and Rumbling Bald Mountain

Lake Lure After Rain
After over fourteen inches of rain since July 2nd, Lake Lure and the surrounding rivers and creeks are bursting at their seams. Above is the lake with towering Rumbling Bald Mountain along its western shore. Small waterfalls have appeared all along the cliffs as the rain continues to fall. Below is the southern face of Bald Mountain clearly showing the Sugarloaf fault line. Over millions of years, this fault has created Hickory Nut Gorge, with the Rocky Broad River at its base.

After a twenty minute drive north of the lake, I was back in Otter Creek Valley, and the view from my deck at sunset was magical.
