Drought Effects on Some Popular Sites in the Bankhead National Forest

Made a video from some visits to some popular sites like the Sipsey Fork at Highway 33, Thompson Creek trailhead (0:34), Kinlock Falls(0:54), Houston Recreation Area (1:53), Brushy Lake (2:42), Borden Creek Trailhead (3:42), and the Sipsey Fork at the Picnic area (3:53).  The most shocking was Thompson Creek, which was totally dried up, and Borden Creek, which had only small pools that were about a hundred yards apart.  Borden also had some hog sign where pigs had flipped large rocks to forage for food items that might be under them.  Make the video full screen by clicking square icon on lower right of video.
