The End Of The Line

                                                          of the lineLIFE DOWN SOUTH –  After 88 photos, after a stretch that ran from August 2014 until June 2016, Photo Of The Week is no more. For almost two years we’ve shared images and stories of people, clouds, orchards, lighthouses, mountains, storms, rivers, and more. We hope they brightened your day.

The End of The Line is just that.

What’s next? We’ll take you to Carolina bays, perhaps the world’s most mysterious landform. For certain, no other natural feature in America comes close. No one can say with certainty what force or processes set these elliptical, shallow, NW-to-SE depressions in the Coastal Plain, but they’re there, wild and beautiful—places harboring Venus flytraps and other rare plants.

At ground level they look like swamps. Chances are you’ve driven by a Carolina bay and didn’t realize it. Think of Carolina bays as oval saucers whose rims sit above the land. The similarity to craters on Mars and the moon is astonishing. Outside botanists, herpetologists, biologists, naturalists, writers, and photographers, few know these bays intimately. Many have never heard of them. Perhaps you?

You won’t see us as often… we have explorations to make, but we’ll provide glimpses into another world through our Carolina Bay Boys website.
Au revoir.
