Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. Also welcome to DECEMBER!!!! My header picture this month is a beautiful photo from our trip last year to "Christmas at Biltmore"... Being there to see that beauty just makes Christmas more special for us! Enjoy, and Merry Christmas.

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.
