...river-worn stones where no river now runs.That's a runoff channel -- you don't want to be standing there during a thunderstorm...
Very insightful as always, Bill, but in this case there is a ruined power station nearby such that an artificial diversion of the river has since been diverted by nature. That's not to say that the river might not get over there if there was flooding enough, of course...The old power station was from right around the turn of the last century. Apparently every part of it was made by hand, down to fitting by hand adze and plane. There's not much left, but the foundations show significant craftsmanship.
Looks like it had the potential to be a pretty good trout stream in its heyday, then...
One of the great (long after the end of the F.D. Roosevelt Presidency) laments is what the TVA did to trout fishing and white-water rafting in the Southeast. That's also why some of the "Wild and Scenic" rivers in the US have survived without getting dams built on them - Trout Unlimited, Izzac Walton League, and their supporters. LittleRed1
