North Fork Left Fork
Peaceful valley with some cows, near Black Mountain, NC along a road called North Fork, Left Fork. I don't know if anyone knows what the forks were originally of, usually it's the left fork of something creek or river.
If you drive up Right Fork of North Fork (heaven help the postal delivery) you get to the deadend near the reservoir for Asheville watershed. You can't see it, unfortunately. Except when the Blue Ridge Parkway is open and you go to the lookout at Craggy Gardens Visitors Center, and there it is about 10 miles away.
All of the creeks in Black Mountain end up in the Swannanoa River, and then the French Broad River, which flows west to the Tennessee River.

as something that has been around for a long time, and I'm just thinking about the mountains and creeks.
