Low water lake bed

I took these pictures on January 1, 2008, when the water level at Folsom Lake was low.  The communities of Mormon Island and Richmond Hill, on the South Fork of the American River, were inundated after the construction of Folsom Dam in the 1950s, but fragments of these historic sites still linger.
