Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. Also welcome to AUGUST...Today's photo was taken at Biltmore. I wanted to share this picture since I love the reflections in the lake of those gorgeous clouds, with the Biltmore House in the distance. Have a great month ahead.

The picture above shows you this wild and raging river from our overlook above. Don't you love the color of this river? Below are more!
Here are some statistics about the whirlpool. The depth is 35 feet; water speed is 22 mph; descent is 52 feet in 1.2 miles... There is just so much water here --as the river narrows and is moving so fast, that it doesn't have anywhere to go... Hence---the whirlpool!!!
Hope you enjoyed our photos. IF you ever get to Niagara Falls, be sure and drive down to see the Whirlpool... AND--be sure to ride the Aero Car and that other boat --if you dare!!!!!
Have a wonderful day.
