I finally got a good shot of the dam. Parking near it isn't that great and the couple of spots that are there I always seem to pass before I realize it. Not today. LOL! The picture of the bird below is the only bird I saw all day, at least while I was out of the car with the camera. There was also still some water running down the stream here but a lot of areas full of water are now dried up. It's fire season and it looks it (didn't take any pictures to prove it).
And look! I was finally able to get a picture of a squirrel too!
