Pics from my trip to the power plant

So I had to go do some work up at the power plant .. it's not really that far from here, but especialy in the spring the trail up there is pretty rough

It takes about an hour and fifteen mintes to get back .. here's some pics!

Here's on on a seanic spot on the trail .. only in a Jeep



Here's a nice mud bog .. I basicly idled through it.



And a water fording .. this one is deepr than it looks a full 24" on the driver side .. I gave it a bit of gas near the middle but the QDII laughed it off ... no sweat



Here a shot from the bottom of a rough downhill climb wit the Commander hiding way back there.



There ws lots of rock rawling too ... the Commander did not scrape on the rocks like other vehicles have done in this shot



Comtinued in next post

Pics from my trip to the power plant second page

There was lots of wildlife on the trail but most were too quick for my cammera here's a painted turtle just before he jumped off the log he was sunning himself on.



I'm right near the end of the trail here, there was some loose rock to play on .. too bad I was on my own, an assistant would have been great for some action shots



This section reminds me of films I've seen of the bayou, all green covered water and moss everywhere.



Ok "end of the trail" (for everyone else) I'm "authorized" and have a key



One more post left to go ........

Fixed up thoses pics .. I'm learning .. if the thumb nails donlt show up it seems the pics won't ... I accidentaly closed the "manage attachments" window beore I hit submit I guess

A little more rock crawling then the trail opens up to a sort of "civilization"



I think the Commander fits right in with the heavy equipment I had to dodge around to get to the dam .. this stuff it floated down the river on a huge barge to get to the site.






The water is NOISY and a little bit scary .. thoses guard rails are not desigedtot stop a car either there's a big sign that say "No Vehicle Traffic" before the dam entrance. but no way am I walking all that distance


and some section have no railing at all ... here's one of the buildings I had to work on .. besides a hydro electric dam, there's also lift lock so boats can by pass the rapids and water fall .. that's what these huge gates are
