DeSoto Falls, DeSoto State Park, Alabama

Smaller, less-vertical waterfall. Refrigerator-sized boulders sticking out of the creek downstream
River at the bottom of a narrow valley, viewed from a distance

First glimpse into Little River Canyon as we started biking from the downstream end. Not too dramatic yet...

River with fairly flat water. You can tell it bends against a cliff-like wall in the distance.
River with a rapid between two flat stretches in steep canyon viewed from the cliffs above.

...but it gets more canyon-like.

Panorama of river in a steep canyon. Same rapid visible in the photo above is visible in the left (upstream) end

Bikes leaned against a sign that says "CLOUDLAND / CHATTANOOGA →"

No sign for the state line, but this road is right on the border.

New York City → Princeton, NJ → Philadelphia, PA

I seemingly only took pictures of and/or from bridges on this trip.

Yes, this is a different bridge than the previous photo.

Lock on the D&R Canal

Light snow just barely sticking on the first day of Code4Lib 2023.

Bike with subtly non-planar rear wheel propped in corner of Gothic revival breezeway at Princeton. Through the opening of the breezeway we can see a light snow sticking to plants but not the ground.

Something about that bike propped casually in this breezeway struck me as picturesque, like a clichéd European scene or something. Then I noticed the rear wheel of the bike is deformed, so it's probably been there awhile.

Interior view of Princeton Chapel, looking down the center aisle with colorful banners hanging above looking like something out of goddamned Harry Potter
