Yamato Dam

Took a short drive one afternoon with my wife and we decided to go check out another damn that I haven't been before. I've seen photos of it and knew the general area of the island it was in so we didn't have any troubles finding it.

Lots of Angles

This dam is tiny compared to some dams I've seen. Although it's small, it sort of reminded me of the Grand Coulee Dam in Washington State. I recently photographed a dam in Sumio with one of my good friends and this one is just a bit bigger I think.

Taking a Stroll

They had a nice path going around the lake and we took a short walk around part of it. We didn't have a lot of time so we didn't quite make it a 3rd of the way around the lake.

Nothing too great about these photos. I kind of like the panorama so I thought I would share them with you. I took my daughter to see this damn a few days later and she had some fun then. I'll share those photos in a different post. :)

The are cool pictures Earnest. I had to laugh when I read some of your captions. You've interchanged 'dam' and 'damn' in some of them! ^_^ Reminds me of my wife going on about visiting the Glenn Canyon Dam in Arizona a few years ago. We parked in the dam parking lot and went on the dam tour! ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ_彡☆バンバン!!

You know, that's actually a typo! LOL No matter how many times I try to recheck my spelling, I usually end up missing a few mistakes like this that don't show up in spell check. We'll leave that up there so everyone can laugh at my eeleet spellin skillz.
