Heavy Loads and Water High
09-09-2020, 10:55 AM,
Heavy Loads and Water High
One of my most recent (last?) ideas for "There'll be no paddle up your creek, Just heavy loads and water high" in the Yellowstone geyser area is one I have never seen posted elsewhere:

Mallard Creek and Mallard Lake

Just pass by, don't go up the creek..

No paddle refers to a duck or goose or swan paddling with their feet (mallard qualifies).

For heavy loads, there are two upthrust lava domes currently in Yellowstone -- one is the Mallard Lake dome. Mallard Lake is "high" as a result. The dome is heavy.

This is on the way to the Midway Bluff area (my prior solve area) and to the Nez Perce crossing trail. Midway Bluff looks down on Excelsior Geyser Crater and on the Grand Prismatic Spring.

I previously accused Forrest of having long feet in an email, which may have triggered his foot-related contest (or not). If he meant to signify a foot-race to the chest, I was not able to search in the April-early June time frame. My accusation was that he was a poet and didn't know it -- his feet were Longfellows. (An old joke.) Longfellow was always in play for me because his very famous Paul Revere poem starts out with "Listen my children and you shall hear..." Also " Footprints on the sands of time" is from Longfellow's poem, A Psalm of Life (worth a read). This had led me to Longfellow's "Excelsior" poem, and my Midway Bluff solve. I had emailed Forrest part of this solve in October when I told him I went back there a second time within several days (costing an extra round trip airfare, rental car fees, motel) due to a photograph my wife had taken only days before at that location. This seemed to trigger the Scrapbook about the sandstorm poker game at the airbase, in which he concludes it is not good to bluff twice. I am citing this to give an example of how he liked to play with people, without really giving them any new information (IMO).
