Found this root structure in the creek today



Not sure what to so with it, it was sitting in a slow moving 1foot of water looked cool so I jumped in and grabbed it. I don't have a tank remotely big enough to house it. Just thought i would share . If you live in Cincinnati or around here you can have it.

That's pretty cool. I'm going DW hunting this weekend. Gonna drive to the other less populated side of Shuswap Lake & see what I can find. I hope I luck out like you did

I live in Salmon Arm BC Canada. We are on the Shuswap Lake in BC interior. It's really pretty awesome around here. We're surrounded by mountains, lakes, rivers, swamps..... It's pretty cool.

Wow I am so jealous that you guys have places with DW opportunities! I live in north TX and while I live on a large lake, it's pretty mucky and the only wood I have ever found nearby looks like it was soaked in nuclear waste lol. Going to Colorado next month so hopefully I find some great pieces to bring back!

If it makes you feel any better I live in tourist central. They get the best if everything & I just work here. It's Canada day long weekend & you can't get near a campsite in the lake cuz the tourist have them all. But it's a bit worth it cuz this stuff is pretty close to my house

Within 2 minute walk

20 minute drive away (directly across the lake from the last picture) is a waterfall with a creek that leads to the lake. It's all walking trails so its pretty cool
