George,
do you know where that was in Boone?


Matt,

The picture was on Facebook (reposted by a friend of mine). It said it was on 321 in Boone so I'm thinking it is on the road between Boone and Blowing Rock. Along that ~ 8 mile stretch there is an area that runs along a large creek or river (not sure which, but there was a For Sale sign there for acreage that said something like "Waterfront (or Riverfront) Property".

Here's a nice Google ground level shot of the spot that gives some perspective on just how much water is in that picture.

Sweeet pics! Wish I'da been there but there was too much to learn at my new gig. We could have the next UN here in the Mississippi Delta. Lots of straight, flat roads, cornfields and soybeans.....but we've got blues!


I knew I'd end up disillusioned. I just thought it would be better than this.

That's where I was thinking, I believe it's a dam or reservoir for that area? Usually lots of students there tubing on that lake during the hot parts of the school year.

Well never mind, the link just takes you to a US map.

FWIW A local told me that Boone was in a flood plain. I guess the pic proves it.
