Tip Tuesday: Don’t go chasing waterfalls. Please stick to the rivers and streams you are used to. #adventurehydro #tlctuesday #justforfun #ichasewaterfalls #nowthesongisstuckinmyhead .
As a stream flows, it carries sediment that can be microscopic silt, pebbles, or even sometimes boulders. This flowing sediment erodes stream beds made of soft rock, such as sandstone or limestone. Eventually, the stream's channel cuts so deep into the stream bed that only a harder rock, such as granite, remains. Waterfalls then develop as these granite formations form cliffs and ledges and of course when the water falls over the edge. #waterfalls101 #hydrology #scienceissexy #ecoexplorer
