We now pictorially explore Bill Fork or Bill’s Fork between the two areas already featured in part 1 of “Tile Creek, Sunday Again”, lying at the junction of Fork Creek and an as yet unnamed spring entering it from the west here. Forward Spring? (backwards from Spring Forward). Or maybe just Bill Spring, since, again in Hucka-speak, most landmarks in the area are named some variation of Bill by the original inhabitants (The Bill). Apparently they had almost a total lack of imagination. 🙂
Below we find a “flowery” appearing log actually covered with decay fungii — have to research what kind. To the right, just beyond the line of rhododendron, flows the spring talked about before. Further to the right would be found Fork Creek itself.
Nearby hole in the ground from which you can hear the head of the spring, despite no sign of surface water. Perhaps add it to the growing list of TILE Creek mysteries, then. I’ll probably tag this hole as well with a name. Billy Hole? The more I think about it the more I believe the spring is named Bill itself, and found inside this hole. Not a typical hole.
Small falls on Fork Creek probably marking a limit of Billfork on its western side.
Larger drop just downstream, with the main, discernable path into Billfork crossing its top. Billfork would mainly be found to the left here.
A slender rock leaning against the back of Bill Rock, the latter being the largest stone of Billfork by far, and which Bill Spring passes directly beneath on its way to Fork Creek.
And then Bill Rock itself, seen from the north. The waterfall pictured above would lie behind it as viewed from this direction.
Another quite amazing find this day: what I call the Lower Rock Garden within another tributary of Fork Creek not far north of Billfork, maybe even a part of the Greater Billfork Metro Area. I also found a complimentary Upper Rock Garden above it this day. The amazing TILE Creek finds certainly are continuing!
* Quote from above (Nino the Mind-Boggler from “Everything You Know Is Wrong”)
Sending from his own mind to yours, here is Nino Savate with ‘A Psychic Minute.’
Can I say, hello? This is Nino the mind-boggler with Occult In Your Head. Today, let’s get into holes: The most mysterious, importantest and vaguest subject of them all.
The whole Earth might be called a hole, if you’re on the inside, looking out. And whole golden cities might be hid at the bottom of a bottomless pit. Even wholesome humans have holes, though we’re hardly whole at all. In fact, we’re wholly hole-y. As the Holy Book says in the Book of Holes, Chapter 1: ‘And they knew not their holes from an ass on the ground.’
Holes are positively attractive. Let’s go inside one and see… This is a typical hole. Not a hole in the wall, but a hole like a well. Well, well, what the Hell? That’s the sun at the center of the Earth, and that’s where this hole leads to. Heh-heh! What a nice, warm fire.
Next time, I’ll think to you about gravity, and its opposite, comedy. Until then, this is Nino saying, can I say, goodbye?
