In addition to taking in the history of Ocemegee Mounds National Park, one of my last forays out before North Carolina’s stay at home order, I was able to explore some of the wetland trails in the park.
While exploring, it became apparent that the area had recently experienced some major flooding. A coating of dried clay covered the vegetation, drawing a line at the high water mark. Technically, the boardwalks were closed, but I snuck past the rope to take a few pictures of the clay coated grasses and tree.
The thing about any high water mark is, you can’t see it until the flood recedes. We are still watching the flood waters rise as Covid-19 advances in the US, hopefully we will see the high water mark soon.
