Riding along lakes, rivers and seas

Good scenery only gets great when there is water involved. Waterfalls make a river impressive, lakes give a valley that special something - and riding in one direction for days on end only to end up at an ocean is one the many great feelings of accomplishment you get while riding.

I didn't find any thread here that covers the pictures I would like to share and see, so I thought I'd start a new one.

My ride to town from our farm in west-central Virginia:



Same creek, eroding through some cool geologic structures (I'm a geologsit so this is extra cool to me):



Same creek, same ride as above:



Groundwater seeping out of the rocks on a cold day makes cool ice falls:



From back when I lived in Wyoming, Upper Green River Lakes, one of the prettiest places I know:





One more, Waterton - Glacier park, rode there with my son several years ago. We took LOTS of "water" pictures in Alberta and BC, what a glorious place:

Probably pretty good. WV stocks them on a regular basis. I don't do trout.

I do know there is some nice whitewater if you're there at the right time.
