Folsom Powerhouse

On a cool day with the sky full of ever-changing clouds I went back to visit Folsom’s historic powerhouse for the first time in more than 20 years. A bright, airy visitor’s center has been added to this local state park, and I spent a few minutes strolling around in there before heading outside. For the moment I just want to share a handful of the many pictures I shot around the powerhouse.
