    • lc,

      Thanks for stopping by!

      Your namesake out here must have been quite the enterprising sort – a rancher who on his own initiative and with his own resources, built a dam! I mean, you saw the pictures – that thing isn’t small.

      It seems like there is a fair amount of things out this way that were started, and abandoned. Mines, lots of abandoned mines, ghost towns, and a ghost-dam.


  1. I think you made a short camping trip sound like the adventure of a lifetime and the pictures of the dam are somewhat haunting— you wonder -why did it get built and then abandoned?
