A Single Lotus Bloom
Photograph - Photography
This photograph was taken last summer while visiting Morrison Rockwood State Park near Morrison, Illinois. The park is comprised of 1,164 acres, located north of Morrison in Whiteside County. It was established in 1971 and officially opened for day use that same year. The park is named for the city of Morrison and a combination of nearby Rock Creek and the heavily wooded park area--Rockwood Lake Carlton. The lake was created by making a watershed impoundment constructed in 1969 by building a 38-foot high, 1,800-foot long earthen dam across a stream. The lake was named in memory of L. Carlton Anderson, a local citizen who actively promoted the park and was an important civic and conservation leader. The park is used for fishing, camping, hiking, and boating. The park is home to a wide variety of wildlife and flora. It is a wonderful lake to visit and see nature at it's finest.
