…I just love my job. I love that I get to see and do the things I do – research! Headed up to Liberty Dam to look for some shaft openings, to do a possible tunnel inspection sometime in the future. While waiting for my tour guides, I roamed around a bit and took some photographs of the property.

 This looks like the old hut the engineers used when building the Ashburton plant.

Blue highlights on this contraption.

Ha! A charm of finches. (Why aren’t seagulls really a flock? They are a colony. And what about turkeys? A rafter??)

P1070336

Getting a little bored here.

P1070344

Yes! First stop, the intake structure!

P1070350

Liberty Road bridge. I asked about kayaking here – need a permit and a 12′ kayak. Mine is 10′.

I like the glass block.

P1070356

The valves. Looking for an opening to enter the conduit to Baltimore, for the inspection.

Done at the intake, headed to the dam.

P1070389

Art deco?

P1070369

Damn! I thought there was going to be an escalator or an elevator to get to the bottom!

P1070373

Heading down. Does anyone else have a problem photographing with LED lights?

P1070377

Looking up from the bottom. No matter if I used a flash or not, the LEDs were too bright.

P1070381

Another view. Different light.

P1070384

This is dead center at the bottom. It was a relief opening when they built the dam.

As can be seen here during construction – the relief opening.
