Lovely photos Mabli.
That lake looks haunting (unless I need a new laptop
Thank you! Its not really very haunting, but its too poluted for fish. The picture shows the comorant that sits on the rocks, not sure why it doesnt go to the nxt lake which is stocked with fish. You can walk to Siabod from this lake, very nice walk, very gentle for folk with saw knees!

Its really interesting isnt it? Some of these places were extremely industrial, and now they're just derelict, with great gaping holes in the rocks where the mines drop into the earth. Im always imagining what it must have been like, whole workforces and the dirt, noise and smoke all gone. Sometimes they leave an impression on the landscape of real unhappiness, it adds to the feeling of hostility that I get in some of the valleys.
So many folk have left their mark on these landscape over the millennia thats partly why I love them. Reminds me how fleeting life is.
