Carpenter Lake Dam

What you see here is Carpenter Lake Dam. I've shown it to you a few times before, but I think it's been awhile since I've shared it. If you want to see some more about it, go ahead and type in the word "dam" in one of my search boxes. There's some good stuff there.

This side of the dam is the part of the nature park where not many people go. This is a little bit off the trail, and you have to walk down the side of a steep slope to get here. It's kind of easy to fall while trying to get to this place. But if you're careful, it is worth the trip. Get it? I said trip. Ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaah!!!

I know it wasn't that funny, but I feel it's my duty to be at least a little bit weird in everything I write. I think that qualifies. Don't you? Anyway, on to the real reason I've decided to revisit this dam today. I've brought you something that I've been wanting to do for quite some time. Can you guess what it is?

That's right! It's another episode of Rat TV! This time I'm bringing you a video of this dam in action. Flowing, falling water. Waterfalls are some of my favorite things, and this dam is the closest thing to a waterfall I've ever had the pleasure of seeing. I sometimes come here and just sit and watch it. This is why I wanted to share it with you.

That's what I wanted to do for today. I hope you all enjoyed this look at my favorite dam. I know I did. See you next time.


  1. It's wonderful to hear the water running at this time of the year! I thought it would be frozen..

  2. wow.. thanks for sharing!
    i love the picture and the video.

    how i wish i'm in that place right now...

  3. Is it safe for swimming? The sound of water rushing are soothing :)

  4. See? I laughed out loud at the joke in this post! I told you your sense of humor was contagious.

  5. You have yours, and I have mine.

    I rarely see water rushing down like yours at Cerok Tokun, but I love to find wonders at this place.

  6. Nice...I remember when the mother duck lost her little ones and then they reunited there.
    I am going to have to do a video with my camera has the capabilities, but I have never used that feature...a waterfall is the perfect place to do it at, isn't it?

  7. I love waterfalls! I could listen to them all day. It's like the ocean. Such a peaceful sound.

    And I did laugh at the joke :)

    Happy Thursday,

  8. Thanks for taking the video of the dam. That is fun seeing that going on. And the joke was pretty good. That also was a great picture of the dam and I am glad you did it again because we didn't see it last time.

  9. Water running is soothing... very relaxing.

  10. oh, you remind me of waterfalls, love the video, love to listen to the running water. I should be hiking this weekend to a nearby waterfall.

  11. I love the sound of water over a falls or dam, I find it exciting. Great job on this episode of Rat TV.
