Hiking at Anderson Dam, Morgan Hill

I can’t seem to get enough of fresh air so I headed for Anderson Dam the other day. It’s been a lot of talk about the dam because of the excess rain water that threatens the reservoir dam. It has a crack and therefore it has to be emptied as much as possible day in and out….

the dam is only supposed to be 68% full , anymore than that and the dam could fail under the pressure of too much water during an earthquake of magnitude 7.5 or stronger….
