Sorry but you’ll be hard pressed to find a flaming geyser – its methane source petered out years ago, though tossing a match into the well, may get you a reaction (we didn’t have any.)
But who cares with so much beauty surrounding you at Flaming Geyser State Park?
Last week, on a cold and frosty autumn day we bundled up and went for a walk in the park, starting out on the deserted road that runs through the center,
then into the woods to walk the trail beside the Green River.
We saw ducks heading downstream,
and salmon fighting their way upstream, returning to their birthplace to spawn, a fall miracle that never ceases to amaze me.
We paused for a few minutes to absorb this peaceful scene where the river decided to hide and rest a while,
then exited the woods, where as if on cue, two bald eagles appeared overhead.
A fitting end to a beautiful walk. And I even managed to ‘square’ all my photos for Becky’s WalkingSquares challenge.
And that’s all for this Monday morning. Better get out for today’s walk.
Your photos are beautiful, Susanne, such a nice place. I have seen TV shows where people puncture a hole in the ice, then light the methane on fire, fire shooting out of a lake!
Thanks, John. I remember the first time I went to the park wondering, where is it?? Then realized its flaming days were over. Fire shooting up out of a lake would certainly be impressive though! 🙂
It is very unusual. The Like button won’t let me tap it, hmmmm.
Strange! I’m able to ‘like’ your comment. I’ll go check some of my settings.
It may very well be on my end, no need to be concerned.
Okay. Thanks. I don’t think it’s something I can control with a setting. Sometimes it’s a browser thing or hiccup in wordpress.
Exactly! WordPress can be very temperamental.
As an aside, I’ve never seen a like button on any of your posts. I suspect it’s something to do with my settings, but not sure what.
Isn’t that strange? I get many ‘likes’ on my posts, so maybe a browser issue?
That is odd, my posts usually get something like ten to more than 30 likes.
Either that, or my privacy settings.
I like the juxtaposition of the ducks going with the current and the salmon against it.
Thank you. 😊
What a treat! A pair of bald eagles – amazing!!
Thank you! We do see them around here, but it is always a treat! 🙂 Especially a pair!
A lovely walk – autumn colours, a river and bald eagles! Thanks for sharing it with us 🙂
Thank you, Sarah! So glad you enjoyed it 😊
Flames or not, it was still a lovely walk, and great photo opportunities too.
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks, Pete. It has everything! Except a flaming geyser!. 😉
Oh these are all wonderful photos. I love all the leaves on the trail 😀
Thank you so much! 🙂
Wonderful adventure walk there.
Yes indeed! Thank you. 😊
What a great place. The eagles are fabulous. I miss seeing them!
It’s a great park! And the eagles were a bonus. 😊
Exactly my kind of walk, and Robert would have loved it too. Thank you so much for sharing and squaring 🙂
