Of a really nice day.

I took a walk along some railroad tracks along the Stoneycreek River and got some really nice pictures. I decided to walk along the river to a place called Border Dam.

The walk up provided excellent scenery.

Image

This is the Border Dam which was built in the 1920's for the Steel Mills about 15 miles down river in Johnstown. What little of the steel industry left there does not rely on this dam any longer.

Image

Image

This is the old control building on the dam.

Image

Image

There was a black stone block on the old building with the high water mark from the St. Patrick's Day flood on March 17, 1936.

Image

Up the tracks a little more I saw a formation of stone walls. This revealed an old stone house foundation complete wan old stone staircase.

Image

Image

Image

Image

The old stone fireplace along with the mantle was still in great shape!

Image

Image

Heading back down river to the truck, I saw some kayakers taking advantage of the beautiful day.

Looks like a good place to use a metal detector. :wink:
