August 13 – Diablo Lake and Dam Tour
We had a great time on the Seattle City Light Tour on Diablo Lake. Lyle, Francie, Suzanne, Richard, Chet, Sachi, Mike, Marie, Harry, Janet, George, Marilyn, Karl, Pat, ElRae, Becky, John, Randy, Janeen, Tim and Kathy met at 8:30 at Burlington Edison High School. We went up Highway 20 and took a brief stop at Newhalen. We then continued up Hwy 20 to mile post 127.5 to the Environmental Learning Center. After check-in, we had a wonderful lunch. We then had a short briefing by the park ranger in which she provided some historical information about the Diablo and Ross Lake Dam area. We then headed to our boat for the tour of Diablo Lake. It was a beautiful sunny day-warm but not too hot. The scenery was spectacular. It was perfect MG day. Thank you to Lyle and Becky for the photos.
