A Day on the River with Bailey

A little Sunday Funday with Bailey in this beautiful off trail location, I can’t decide if its the setting or just Bailey herself that makes this place look like paradise πŸ˜€

Exploring with Megan

Megan and I decided to do a little exploring/picture taking on a very cold rainy day.We headed out to Lake Hodges dam and trekked down the man made trail to the entrance.

Note: This area is very dangerous and prohibited to enter, I do not condone anyone to enter the premises.

Built in 1918 Hodges dam was built and created Lake Hodges itself which when completely full is about 115 feet deep. Unfortunately with the images below you can’t see the full extent of the dam but honestly, no image I’ve seen can show how massive this place is. Inside are multiple rounded doorways that lead to rooms upon rooms upon rooms all of which are decked out with graffiti. A walkway along the top (as seen below) lines the dam from left to right.

Although freezing, Megan killed it that day and we got some great images and even better memories!
