We found this bird nest inside one of the abandoned houses.
Our goal for our hike at Anchor Dam was to go to the wooded picnic area, cross over the bridge there, and walk along the south side of the reservoir. Click here for a satellite view.
We underestimated just how long a hike it was from the picnic area to the dam. The temperature was in the mid 90s; fortunately we took enough drinking water.
Compare the dried bushes on the right (below) with how they looked when they were blooming by clicking here and scrolling down to the ninth shot (there is a link to Anchor Dam at the photograph).
