At the waterline, Part 1

I mentioned in a post a few days ago that due to the rising water level at Folsom Lake I missed out on seeing the old Salmon Falls Bridge out of the water. I’ve actually walked across that bridge in the past, but that was several years ago, and I don’t seem to have any photos of that excursion. This is the time of year when the Sierra snowpack starts to melt and comes rushing down to fill up our valley reservoirs, so it’s not too surprising when spots along the bank disappear between visits. And as much as I love seeing these old remnants from before the construction of Folsom Lake, I’d much rather see the lake as full as possible!

I wish I could tell you what sort of structure this used to be, but I haven’t been able to identify it yet. I found it along the Monte Vista Loop trail, near Salmon Falls.

Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing more of the old foundations and other remnants I recently found in this area of the lake.
