Along the Shale creek path to the Eternal Flame there was a part in the creek where Mother Nature truly was amazing. this shot is actually of the creek flowing through a spit in a fallen tree. The creek wasn' going to let any old tree block it up so as the tree dried out the water snuck through the cracks.
Here's some more information on the Eternal Flame:
The so-called �eternal flame falls� is a waterfalls of Shale Creek in the southeast corner of Chestnut Ridge Park in an area known as the Shale Creek Preserve. A grotto on the right side of the falls (as you are facing it) has several fissures through which methane gas escapes.
There are lots of fissures in the creek bed through which methane gas escapes, and you�ll smell it as you approach the falls, but the others can�t be set aflame because they are exposed to dissipation by the air currents or are under water (look for rising bubbles.)
Contrary to its name, however, the Eternal Flame it is not always on flame but the escaping gas can usually be lighted with a barbeque lighter, so bring one with you in case the flame has gone out when you get there.
