Castlewood Canyon Dam

CRUMBLING AWAY IN A VERDANT state park, the ruins of the old Castlewood Canyon Dam hardly looks like the remains of a sturdy industrial water wall that released a torrential flood on the surrounding area when it finally broke. Built in 1890 and leaking for years after that, the Castlewood Canyon dam collapsed on AugustContinue reading “Castlewood Canyon Dam”

Connecticut Trip

I’m still trying to work out the overall theme of this site. I think the majority of content will be related to photography. I may also add a few posts at random that are off topic, but are things that interest me.

With 2015 coming to a close, I have had some interest in starting a 365 project in the new year.
