A first on open roadLove that hose picture
Where's the Hoes? I didn't see AOC in the collection.
I'll have to go with the girl and the surfboard.
That id s fine photograph!
#16, what river are those house boats parked in?
Rob. That is drought stricken Lake Oroville in California
The photo is taken off the Enterprise Bridge looking down on the South Fork of the Feather. I've hauled many a load of logs across that bridge. That's the road that goes up to Feather Falls. Unfortunately, all that country burned up in last year's Bear/North Complex fires. 319,000 acres. The fire made a 24 mile run one night and was stopped when it reached Lake Oroville.
I think that is the West Branch Bridge over Oroville. It supports SR 70 and the railroad. The terrain under the Enterprise Bridge is not as steep and the soil is not as dark. That and there is no marina in the South Fork.
You're right, Feraldog. I just looked up the West Branch Bridge on Google Earth and see that rock outcropping to the left of the picture just upstream of the bridge. I stand (sit) corrected. Google Earth also shows all those house boats squirreled away and there's none under the Enterprise bridge. I should have looked before I opened my big mouth. How embarrassing.
For those who looked amazed at the houseboats in the dregs of Oroville, keep in mind that the lake is about 180 feet below full. That's vertical feet of water and does not take into account the huge expanse that needs to fill up to get even close to full. Shasta, featured earlier this week, is about 150 feet below full. Shasta's area is even larger than Oroville.My point is that poor water management by the California works will probably need more water than the current storm placed in the high country and more than the rains will produce to fill these two critical reservoirs.
"Poor"?The Water Recouces Board and those that pull their strings belong in prison,
Outstanding and beautiful end to the year thanks CW. Went to donate but don't like google or Facebook is there another way.
Kinda partial to dancing horses… And a Better New Year to all!!!
These image collections are always stunning. Thank you so much for what is always a highlight of my week.
I enjoy these every time you post them. Too many to comment on individually, although that pic of the windy road through forest, yeah, thats for me.
My favorite is the one with the dog.
