The Chinese characters on the wall announce deep water area.
This large stone outcropping is the top of the stone that warns of deep water.
A family out for a day of fun on Green Lake.
The photos above were all taken from this bridge.
This photo was taken in May 2011.
Refurbished and updated, the bridge is still in use today.
Move back and forth between the 2 photos above. Lots of changes in 45 years!
A few minutes after I took this photo, I biked to the left up the river, where I got caught in a summer thunder and lightning gully washer storm. The only cover I could find was under a large tree where a group of retired school teachers were also standing. We waited out the storm and were all soaking wet because of the wind driven rain, our umbrellas were useless that afternoon. The storm went on for what seemed to be an hour before before the heavy rain slowed. I jumped on my bicycle and headed for my apartment which was a few miles away. My visit to Green Lake that afternoon was a day to remember
Another photo taken from the bridge, looking upriver in the 1960s.
Lots more color photos from John soon.
