The rock structure along the Green River Lake in the Snake Creek area is unusual.

In the accompanying photos:

  1. The swirling lines and mixed colors in this accompanying photo look like some volcanic action was involved.

  2. Here mother nature made it look like a lateral layer of rock about twelve inches thick was added sometime after the lower formation was finished. PHOTO

  3. Whoever selected the paint color for the Plum Point Bridge did a good job. It is a perfect match for the clear autumn sky an the background. PHOTO
