Danger Dam Sign
Mile 85.6 - Most of the feeder dams have these huge signs posted on the shore for all the people on the water to see. This one is posted near a pier in the Big Slackwater parking lot. There's a large parking area and boat launch here.
Almost every time I go out for a winter hike along the canal, I see woodpeckers in action. It really sounds like someone tapping on wood with a small hammer. Just follow that sound and you can almost always find them. They eat bugs and larvae that winter in trees. You can see that this trunk has taken a few hits!
