  • Description: Alley Spring is located at the foot of a picturesque limestone bluff. The beautiful red Alley Mill is located on its bank, utilizing its perennial flow of water to operate its turbine powered flour mills. The spring has an average daily flow of 81 million gallons of placid azure blue water. The spring basin is funnel-shaped with a depth of 32 feet. Tiny snails and colorful minnows live among clusters of tangy watercress. A short hiking trail around the spring displays a lush abundance of life. Slick rock walls are adorned with hanging gardens of columbine and lush ferns. These fragile yet hardy beauties thrive in small pockets of soil amid the cracks and crevices of limestone rock. Mink, muskrat, and banded water snakes may also be seen swimming in the spring. Swallows nest among the bluffs in the warmer months and eagles may be seen soaring during the winter.

    Very nice set of "Arches" Stephen. Wasn't sure, but thought someone said one of the famous landmarks fell? Really enjoyed the "Double Windows" when there!

    That moose is a "spike" i.e. a very young juvenile, probably on his first year away from mom. His antler's will fill out further in the next few years.

    Very interesting post Donna and Mike on Moose/Antlers. Not sure what may have caused the change in antlers, but pretty sure the one will end up looking like one of these in a few years.
