Return to the Abandoned Rancho Appaloosa

The Road Up in 2016


So, let's see what has changed. This is what we saw in 2016. This scene should look fairly similar right? The vegetation will be a bit denser, but nothing else will have changed.

The Road Up In 2018


Wrong! In 2016 there was an extra lamp post. It has obviously been recycled.

Road Clearance


Interestingly, this road has been cleared since we first came. The inset picture is from 2016. I think they have cleared the road in order to access the power lines.

The Reservoir in 2016


We are now at the top of the road. In 2016, there wasn't much water in the reservoir. That abandoned church is way off to the left.

The Reservoir in 2018


In 2018, there wasn't much water in the reservoir either. That abandoned church is still way off to the left. Not that I bear a grudge...

The Abandoned Rancho Appaloosa

I feel like apologising for the size of this blog, as it contains over 70 photos.

I appreciate that it might not be for everybody though, so the first page contains spoiler photos of what to expect. If you find them interesting, then continue to the main blog!

Kouris Reservoir

We've neglected the dams for a while. They've overflowed, and now the waters are subsiding, ever so slightly. But what of the reservoirs further afield? Kouris has a church which is nearly submerged when it is full. So we thought we better photographed this semi-submerged church while it is still semi-submerged.
