The Ochre Trail … The Paint Pots

October 28, 2020

The Paint Pots

Along Ochre Creek …

… we find a tangled mess of timber in the stream.

Spring runoff must be spectacular here.
Finally … the Paint Pots
2 small green ponds and a Paint Pot (right).

Ever seen a green pond like this?
And that’s not the reflection from the trees.
A unique environment.

There’s the Paint Pot.

The Ochre Paint Pot spring. 

One day to be a choke cone?

Heading back …

      This is the source. Where the Ochre bubbles up. I’ll tell you something special about this puddle of mud in my next post. Things are often not what we see.

      1. Looking forward to it!
