The Cross

For many years I have been looking at a simple white cross high above Intake II near Aspendell, and trying to figure out what it was for.  Finally, we just decided to walk up there and have a look.

The first surprise was a pipe that carries water from the South Lake drainage into Intake II.  Who knew.

The second surprise was what the cross was commemorating.  I thought it would be a death during construction.  Instead it is a tribute a young man.  Apparently, he liked to catch fish at Intake II and had friends and family who loved him.

The view from the cross is hard to beat.  RIP.

  1. Such a good way to discover local history first hand. Too bad there isn't an easy way to archive this discovery into something permanent.
