Due to Covid-19 the High Knob Naturalist Rally will be virtual during 2020. Public presentations begin on 26 September, with some highlights from my presentation presented below.

High Knob Lake is nestled within the basin labeled above, with a sprawling and generally lowering crest (courtesy of a E-NE plunging anticlinal axial fold) toward the east-northeast and southeast as the geological structure of the massif changes from a duplex-imbricate tectonic system into a single ramp fault-bend fold to the east.
These frame captures, while not as sharp as the movie, highlight some of the physical features described in more detail during the presentation using photographs I have taken in order to focus upon specific places and features.Capture From Brad Deel Videography
It is now time to begin looking more closely at global teleconnections, with respect to winter patterns, and models are generally in excellent agreement with development of a pattern that will feature unseasonably cold air by early October.
