Floodgates

I took a walk this afternoon to examine the condition of the Colorado River at the floodgates of Tom Miller Dam.  I started at the dam, and then went down for a loop around the trail at Red Bud Isle.  The Isle was partially flooded, but some of the trail remained accessible.  After taking some photos of the flooded state of the river, I returned back up the hill to end up at the dock across from the Hula Hut restaurant.  It turned out to be a nice walk, and a great evening.

Below the Dam

As the sun began its early descent, I embarked down the hill below the North San Gabriel Dam.  This is a nice, paved trail that takes you to the base of the Dam where the rushing water outlet allows the San Gabriel River to continue on its path through Georgetown.  When the days are longer, I will return to explore more of this area.

Overlook Park

Today’s mission was to walk across the North San Gabriel Dam, down the hill, and then to the fishing pier at Overlook Park on Lake Georgetown.  Sometimes you get a groovy sunset, and sometimes you get beautiful colors.  It was a nice cool evening at the lake with an occasional fish jumping to break the calm surface of the water.
