This is the Bowl/Basin side of the dam. Notice the pointy rock during the spring it is barely visable.
Notice the brown house in the mist, tucked serenely away in the lushness of green that envelopes it and protects it from prying eyes.
Not so protected anymore! There is the pointy rock very noticeable now.
This is the looking up from the basin of the dam during the floods. The basin itself is about 20 feet deep and usually 1/2 full during any point in a normal summer.
The water was actually about 2 feet over the cement lip of the dam. Pretty amazing show of force swirling around in that bowl.
This is the outsource of the dam during the flooding.
This is the next afternoon. You can barely see the tip of the pointy rock.
This little row boat actually made it through the dam itself and out the other side and got caught up in the trees that were about 8 feet underwater.
