I was a high school senior at AHS in 1967, and was doing my island exploration time, as I always did. I came upon the Mitchell power plant one beautiful spring day, and saw the plant.
When I went in, I was lost in my own exuberance! I was very excited, and began explored all afternoon. The slate power panels were still in pretty good shape. They had antique switches meters, and other devices.
I took a lot of pictures, but haven't been able to find them (although I am looking harder then ever, so I can publish them on Adak web sites).
I am also writing a book on my explorations of Adak, during the three times I was on Adak. I was there in 1957/59, 1966/67, and then as a CTR3 at NSGA 1970/71.
I loved that island, and the history.
En ce moment,le Parc floraire est sublime.
At the end of the last ice age, Lake Bonneville covered most of Utah. 12,000 years ago it drained in a vast flood northward into the Snake River, leaving shorelines cut into the hills.
This is one of those glorious moments when everything comes together. Wait. Wait. Wait. Success!
This is Cutler Gap -- Lake Bonneville emptied into the Snake River 12,000 years ago at the end of the last ice age through this little canyon.
Spring has just sprung on the Cache Valley floor while winter persists in the mountains. Photographed with a new Nikon D800 camera and 70-200mm f2.8 lens. Multiple shots stitched with Hugin.
