Meow's Favourite Pictures

Just a bunch of pictures, which I absolutely love, and would like to share with you ....

When Lake Eildon was made back in the 1950s, farms and properties were flooded. When the lake levels drop, some of these structures (if they are still standing) appear. This one is at Fraser National Park, and was taken about 8 or 9 years ago. I think it has collapsed since then, as it has been covered and uncovered by water a few times since then. It is really eerie.

Now this is a really cool shot. Here in the GA hills there are lots of delapited barns and old house all around over grown with weeds. Nothing like this picture though!

We have quite a few places, even whole towns, that have been put under water by lakes formed behind dams. I think the only way to see them is with an air tank as the water never seems to get low enough. I know when Grand Coulee Dam filled & made Lake Roosevelt behind it, there sure were a lot of rattle snakes that became swimmers! That was before my time but my parents told me of it.

Reverberate ... thanks. Unfortunately, it has probably collapsed into itself, now, due to the water levels rising and falling so often. There are many places like this around the lake, that appear when the levels drop ... this one was the best preserved, though.

Dick ... that must have been pretty scary, with swimming rattlesnakes ... eeeewwww !!

Hey that would have been eerie for the people who used to live there if they saw it.

Peter ... yeah, I think so, too. It was really creepy when we were there.
