Running Water at Manter Dam

About this Exploration:
Occasionally if a rain falls in just the right area, water still flows in Bear Creek.
This summer Darci Batterton Smith captured these pictures of water coming down Bear Creek and splashing into the Manter Dam site.
The excitement was fun while it lasted!
