As noted in a previous post, East Camino Cielo to Mono Camp, there was once a remarkable swimming hole and water slide at Mono Debris Dam. Now, due to the massive erosion that occurred during winter storms following the Zaca Fire of 2007, it’s gone forever.
From the archives of Clint Elliott, Mono as she was in all her glory:
Great Post and pictures, here’s some youtube footage of a similar scene you might enjoy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-fwMrBlbCY
Hey James. Thanks for sharing. That first shot of the guy slipping and air dropping down the dam face in a standing position is nuts! hahaha!!!
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?
