Hetch Hetchy before the dam




I was so intrigued by the story of the Hetch Hetchy dam that I went back and googled "Hetch Hetchy before the dam" on Google images.  Obviously, these aren't my photos.  They show a beautiful valley which I believe John Muir described as second only to Yosemite in its grandeur.  Ahhh....those were the days!  Here are a few of the images that I found.  If you like, you can do your own search.

  2. I saw a show on TV about Hetch Hetchy on TV a while back. What an amazing place it was before the dam.

  3. Yes, you can certainly get a feel for what it must have looked like before the dam was built. Same thing happens all over the world when big dams are built. China was a recent example.
