Title: Day 7 in paradise for MAK 7-6-12
Post by: MAK on 06-Jul-12, 09:29:59 pm
I ventured out on Day 7 in paradise even tho it was so stinkin' hot! I checked out the Mt. Morris Dam which is about 5 miles from here. I was hoping to see some eagles or falcons, no luck finding any but I was treated to 30 or more Turkey Vultures soaring in the sky. The welcome sign for the town of Mt. Morris says "best town by a dam site!" I just love that! I do hope you enjoy the change of pace from paradise pics as did I. :)

Thanks for the different pictures MAK.
How high up were you from the top of the dam?
The TVs are always fun to watch.

 Not sure how much higher I was from the top of the dam but it was HIGH enough where I held on to the fence with one hand and took pics with the other. I'm afraid of height and one spot where I took the pic captioned "livin' on the edge" there was no fence or barrier whatsoever. I was freakin' out as I walked closer to the EDGE stopping about 6 feet away to take my pic and get the hell outta there. Like the 95 degrees wasn't already making me sweat enough! lol The dam is 230 ft. high from the riverbed and that would be the great Genesee River.  :wave:

Hi MAK, I hear you about heights.
I am afraid too.  You did much more
than I would have done.  Thank you so much.
