About Broxton Rocks:
Ages ago, part of the 15,000 square mile band of sandstone running under this flat coastal part of Georgia was exposed by erosion. Combined with the roaring water of Rocky Creek, a tributary of the Ocmulgee River, and the steady effects of weathering, an environmental anomaly was created, a place where a network of fissures, cliffs and crevices stay cool and moist, juxtaposed with almost desert-like conditions on flat rocks above the fissures.
Mama, Ms. Sue, and I went on the tour this morning! The weather was perfect!
One of the caves
Taking a load off! It was quite the walk at one day shy of 38 weeks pregnant.
They talked about a lot of the plants and flowers around, but this was my favorite, a Pitcher Plant. It's a carnivorous plant, so it traps the bugs that fly in and digest it with the liquid enzymes found in the bottom of the plant. Pretty neat!!
It was a fun (and tiring) morning at the Broxton Rocks! I look forward to taking Arabelle and Bo one day....when they are a good bit older!!
