    Just made a quick pass this new dam and the reservoir of water there was gorgeous to my eyes. This got to be mostly natural spring water here and maybe the green foliage was giving the water this awesome color

    Being a country-boy from the great state of AR, I'm born to be in the dirt and this ties right over into dirt bike riding. Here, it's just raw gnarly, dirt and rocks, by nature, everywhere, except for the few star-rated resorts here.

    Just gnarly, my 012 TC250 Husky fits so well here.

    Here's a look at the reservoir that was created by this dam.

    I'm gonna make a big effort to be in this area when some rain happens...Maybe we can get a rain in the mountains that feed this river. Everything but that top piece of angle-iron on the center-right should go under water.

    I put this pic of Mt Everest climbers (below) here because it is just baffling, no baffling3x, no baffling10x to me on mountain climbing. No disrespect intended but WTF is that? Now, do you think the kids in that pic above can swim like Mark Spitz? Nope. Do you think they know who Mark Spitz is? Nope but it is baffling to me, same as the mountain climbers shown below, how those kids with zero, zero ~knowledge or training on swimming, with their feet are no where near the bottom, will jump into water over their heads all the time here. Do those kids look afraid? No. They are the champion doggie-paddlers of these waters.. Keep moving, just observations from a hayseed from the great state of AR..

    Saga continues here... I'm always a little afraid with kids around as they usually start doing things that maybe they would not do if I was not around, but who knows? In any event, not alot a country-boy can do here to help the masses, but from time to time, I can help a few and maybe make someone laugh. Certainly hope I sell my home before we crash again... Might can create lot more smiles around here then.

    Here's the back side and there are some leaks over on that far side abutment.
