Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. My Header Picture for September 2021 shows a beautiful Sunset with the Shenandoah Valley below. My picture was taken from our room balcony while at Skyland Resort on 8/3/21.

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.
