Photo Hunters - Water


The Mighty Kern River

It's very popular for white water rafting, fishing; it flows through Lake Isabella; provides water for precious farm land; it's also claimed many lives due to a very dangerous undercurrent. Beauty is deceptive!

Hi Gracie. That's a lovely photo. The river looks really refreshing but as you said the undercurrent can be quite dangerous. It's always good to take extra care.

Thanks for sharing. Take care!

I went white water rafting once. I said several friends that ended up in the river. I don't know that I would do it again.

Travis said...

I've never been white water rafting, although I have been camping along rivers like the Kern.

I'm not a swimmer so I stay well back on the shore, but I do enjoy the view!

the night owl said...

I would like to visit this site and hear the sound of the rushing water..
Great choice. Baba

Desert Songbird said...

Like Travis, I'm not a swimmer, but I would love listening to the sounds of the water crashing and splashing.

Beautiful photo, Gracie!

Dangerous, I am sure but it sure is beautiful. I just love God's wonderer and am always amazed by them.

Thanks for your comment & kinds words, too. I'm happy to hear the Photo Hunt is a fave - it's comments like yours that keep me smiling and keep the hunt a live. So, thank you.

The Kern River is beautiful, but sounds dangerous. Great choice for this week. In reference to your comment on my blog: I think my nanday would loose a few feathers it she rode on my bike (from nerves, lol). Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend.

Mags said...

It is very beautiful-with the trees lining the water...

And the music that comes up with it...I'm in a trance.
