Lake Overholser Water Release

This gallery contains 11 photos.

After 3 years of endless drought, we here in central Oklahoma at least, were with desperately needed rain.  It’s gotten so extreme, that our city reservoirs must release water to prevent flooding. After a tip from my Mother, Grace and I took a little photo date down to the Lake Overholser Dam to catch some photos […]

Day 33: Pelicans

The pelicans have been at Lake Overholser for a while now on their way south, but I finally got there at the right time of day for a close shot.

Dawn at Overholser is always really pretty so here are a couple of more runners-up from the same day:

Overholser Bridge is Officially Open

Actually, as I reported on twitter, it officially opened last Tuesday, but I haven’t had a chance to go by and take some pictures.  However, the bridge looks great and the road surface is smooth as silk.  I have to admit I’m going to have a little nostalgia for the old days of hopping over giant holes in the pavement.  Not very much, but a little.  Below are a few more pictures of bridge:

Day 28: Bridge Cross Members

The old Route 66 Overholser Bridge has been closed for the last year which has made cycling around the lake very difficult. Thankfully, the restoration job on the bridge finished last week and I got to experience the new bridge myself this weekend!

I took several more picture during my nice ride out to El Reno and back which you can see here.
