Anchor Dam, part 2

We took our youngest daughter out to Anchor Dam today. Here is one of the places we stopped to explore with her. She took most of the photographs in this post.

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.

Below is what it looks like on the other side of the dam.

Here is one of the many grasshoppers who kept us company.

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).

Just after leaving Anchor Dam, our daughter took the shot below.
