Evretou Is Full
She took her time, but Evretou Reservoir is now full! On a glorious, sunny Friday morning, I took my camera out to record the moment, and Evretou didn't disappoint. It has taken me a long time to whittle down the pictures I took for this blog, but here are a selection of the best.
Ok, so it isn't a huge waterfall, but this is where the water overflows the Evretou Reservoir. Please note that this isn't at the actual dam. If you want to visit the overspill, you need to take a track near Panteli's Tavern on the B7. It can be very muddy if it has rained, so do be careful.
View From The Overspill
Now this view amazed me. I had been in the same spot last year (see the Evretou Dam blog in the links below) and it had looked so different then.
When I took this picture, I couldn't imagine that the reservoir would ever be full again. I thought the overspill was just a redundant bit or architecture.
Third Time Lucky
I visited the site three days on the row before I took these pictures. I have several shots of the water level a few centimetres below this point.
From The Valley Floor
Once I had finished snapping the overspill, I went back to the B7 and took the road up to the dam. On the way, I took a side road to the base of the valley, where I was able to get some nice shots of the flow down into the valley.
