Lake Anderson Spillway

Posted by CW McGowen (Morgan Hill, United States) on 9 June 2017 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

California typically has our wet seasons during the winter. Those seasons vary from normal to wet to drought. This year we have had a very wet season which has ended the recent drought throughout California. In Morgan Hill we can directly see the effects of this year's vast precipitation, Lake Anderson has filled to capacity and overflowed into the spillway for the first time in 11 years.

I was fortunate to have an opportunity to photo document the changes in Lake Anderson County Park that resulted from the large flows of water. I hope the Park Service finds the photos useful. The photo you see here was taken during my efforts and is of the waterfall beyond the end of the Lake Anderson Spillway. The overflow was so strong that the spray from the falls created a small rainbow seen in the image.

Good one. I like the little rainbow at the bottom.
