Lafayette Reservoir, California

Jonathan and I went fishing at the Lafayette Reservoir, California, today. The first thing we noticed was the oddly tall tower sticking out of water, and I was pretty sure the Princess Rapunzel didn’t live there.
It was built in 1927 to match the intended height of the dam, which collapsed during construction. They then had to scale the dam back 1/2 of its original height. The tower that was built first remain.
Not everything goes as we planned, no matter how smart and careful we think we are. We know that first hand, living among Arabs in Palestine / East Jerusalem for last three years!
