Shot ▲ on Wildcat Mountain last Sunday. The pond was drained, the creeks were dry. I wrote The Nature Conservancy:
Pond be gone - or the water in it. Drought? Creeks dry too.
And Sam wrote back:
I was forwarded your email about the pond at Wildcat Mountain. I haven’t been up there for a few months, but am not surprised to hear that the pond and creeks are dry. Much of the state from the Piedmont west had the driest summer in over 7 years this year, and not much rain thus far this fall. Add to that the dam on the pond not functioning 100% and you get what you see. We’ll see what the winter brings…
Yes, drought. There is color in the young trees, the old trees sucked up their sugar to survive the drought, got nothing left for leave-tourists. Fine metaphors abound.
