There's water under the Devil's Gate dam again. We were told that last week's rain wasn't much and truly it's only a stream, but it's good to see.
Click on over to the Pasadena PIO's recent Mystery History piece about the dam and scroll down to the well-known photo of the "completed project." The dam is no longer a public road, but that square control tower or guard house is still there. From where I was standing when I took this shot, all the water in the PIO's photo would have been behind me, where this is now.
The dam was built back in the days when there was enough water that it needed controlling. We don't have that problem now.
I check in at LA Creek Freak a lot. I don't comment much because I don't know what to say. But they do, and they're worth reading.
