Moncton, The Town that Dissapeared

The town dissapeared ... read the story at history link.  Below is a picture of the town about 1910 ... followed by my picture of Jason standing by Rattlesnake Lake the way it looks today.  Thanks to the Cedar River Education Center.  Locate it on Google  Earth Cedar River Watershed folder ... (to be posted later).  The peaks above the lake are said to be used as the Twin Peaks in the 1990s hit TV sercies, according to Wikipedia.

There is an excellant set of photos here which shows some of the places behind this gate. 

All of the dams and pumping stations and much of the watershed is  secured behind barbed wire.

Looks like a nice trip you folks are taking.
Nothing is so permanent as change. Nature shows that everyday in the forrests & rivers.
Of course this is not Nature changing ... this is man changing nature ... see the Boxley Blowout. The good news is that had the Dam  and other developments in the Cedar River Watershed not been accomplished, Seattle would have run out of water a long time ago. 

Here is a picture over the lake at the other twin peak.  The sturctures stickin up out of the lake here are almost certainly from Moncton ... but you are right, 7723 was drift wood ... rotated and mutated.
