Thompson Lake Floodplain

Thompson Lake Floodplain

Fulton County

The gradually sloping ground at the margins of Thompson Lake have given rise to a wide band of shallow-water wetlands with emergent vegetation. This photograph was taken in April 2008 at the edge of dry land, looking northward toward the Sister Creek bluffs and Sister Creek Mound.
