September 26, 2009 Mt. View, Arkansas

The following was taken from the landmarker which I photographed to help me remember the history of this remarkable sight…

“Rainwater falling on the Ozarks has soaked into the ground for millions of years. As it moved through cracks in the limestone bedrock, it dissolved the stone and slowly widened the cracks to form Blanchard Springs Caverns.
The water remained in the caverns until surface erosion carved valleys and allowed the water to escape. You are in such a valley now. As this valley cut deeper and deeper, lower sections of the cave were drained. New springs then developed below older dried-up springs. Blanchard Springs probably came out of the holes high on the bluff above us many years ago, when the streambed lay 20 to 30 feet above its present level.

This stream flows through bat sanctuaries on its way through Blanchard Springs Caverns. The water is enriched because of bat wastes and the decaying remains of those that died. Although this does not affect the appearance of the water, it does make it unsafe to drink."

    Beautiful Terri.

  • Thank you Mariana! It was impossible for my amature-self to feel like I did this scene justice no matter how hard I tried. You really had to be standing there feeling the majesty of this sight to totally appreciate it. It was AWESOME! ;o)

  • Oh Robin you would have just loved seeing this with your own eyes.
    There was so much more behind the scenes that I took pictures of but just haven’t sorted through yet. Billy and I could have just set here for hours.

    What a beautiful shot!

  • If you haven’t been to Mt. View Karen you are close enough that you should do as we did and rent a cabin and go one weekend.
    It is such a quaint town, and everything is just beautiful there. xo
