John and I drove up the valley
beside the Marabasco River looking for the new dam that's now
under construction. I first heard of this over two years
ago from a guy in Cihuatlan but the access road was not yet
built. Recently I ran into an article and fotos in "Sur de
Jalisco". The road has been improved all the way up with
evidence of heavy use. The last 4-5 miles is new and
created for the dam.
This is really a massive
project and a wide angle lens would have shown it better.
We were told they'll be working on this for 4 years. We
figure the dam will be a 'solid wall' and the spillway-outlet
will come out behind the hill on the north side. The
spillway project is almost as large as the dam so look for both.
We went up on a Sunday and may have missed weekday traffic -
just a warning !!
