Mono Debris Dam Swimming Hole (1991)

  1. Great Post and pictures, here’s some youtube footage of a similar scene you might enjoy

  2. That looks great fun – at first I was perturbed though as, in the first photo you can’t tell whether the dam is large or small and I had images of someone sliding down a 100 foot dam or something! 😮

    Wow. It makes me so sad to see this. I have amazing memories of this place. I wish it was still like this today or will maybe someday be like this again. A piece of heaven!

    Jack, is it possible to restore to it’s past condition? What would it take?
