Taylor Overshot Waterwheel at Idaho Springs, CO, alongside I-70 in a roadside park. Placed in the park to commemorate the use of water power in the processing of gold at the gold mines in the area.
Fifty plus years ago the waterwheel was much more accessible. At that time it was great sport to get inside of it like squirrels in a cage and get it rotating quickly enough that the inertia would carry us on a complete 360 degree ride around it. We we didn't get killed I'll never understand.
Very interesting picture of the water wheel. Thanks Steven
