Flip-flop Friendly and Fun
For photography, it's best to travel around the east side of the dam, using morning light.
Late afternoons, HWY 104 and the western entrance would be best.
The red drink machine is the only place you can spend money at this site.
Grab some coffee, tea or juice to drink but, don't waste your cash buying water.
Just a few meters past the drink machine, you come to the Dam Park.
And, over there the dam water if free !
Off to the left of the Dam Map you will find toilets and, they are always clean.
This is one of my favorite spots for catching birds in flight.
There weren't any ospreys out, diving for fish today for some strange reason.
Moving deeper into the dam, here is another great place for viewing nature.
The bridge is a great place to watch for birds, flying around the dam.
This is a point on the west side of the dam where, you cross over water.
The entrance from HWY 104 leads to the parking lot below.
Driving across the dam would take you to the park and toilet facilities.
Outside the dam, there are restrooms to the right and down the stairs below this viewpoint.
Walking towards the dam office, I stopped halfway across the dam spillway.
From this point you can see the Kin Bridge, Okukubi River and a bit of the ocean.
The entire excursion lasted a few hours but, I don't rush things.
It's easy to spend half a day, taking photos and, inhaling nature for me, anyway.
The red X's on this Google Earth screenshot, show where, I Geo-tagged today's images.
