... researchers are studying materials from the mysterious Broborg hill-fort in Sweden, where a tribe of people around 1,500 years ago melted rocks to strengthen fortifications against invaders. They piled boulders left by ancient glaciers into two large rings, put black amphibolite rocks on top, layered the wall with charcoal and burned it. As the rock melted, it infiltrated the boulders and cooled as glass, acting as glue for the wall.
Melting snow runs quickly down a curving rock wall finishing with a short waterfall into a deep stream. This is on the east side of Zion National Park. I call this Punchline for the long setup followed by the short impact. Several images of this stream were taken during the snow on March 1; this image was the best for the lines and curving layers.

Seven Springs serves up a full menu of fun for the entire family. Even when the snow is melted from the #slopes and the sun is shining, there are endless possibilities for activity from the Laurel Ridgeline Zipline Tour and Alpine Slide to the rock wall and downhill mountain bike park. Also, men won’t want to miss the sporting clays complex while the women relax at the spa.
