@KathyCorrellClark Very interesting, I love history. I wish I could help out with some great old stories, but I only lived there for 6 TOUGH months..
Here are the same piers seen from the other side of the river.
The piers that are left can be seen just about dead centre in this view.
Pioneer Peak to be exact.
I remember being here in the late 70s with my Dad and seeing tracks inset in the pavement of the road over the dam.
This looks like Quiet Lk.
Actually it would predate the parks I believe, Old Glenn cutoff to Wasilla?
After reexamining the location, I can see that the Parks Highway is down to a two-lane road and that there are no other roadways in the shot. I recall that there was a wide apron onto which I pulled my car to make the shot. I've readjusted the position to a more likely spot. I'd be grateful for your feedback.
