Water Level Sign
This shot is on its own since you can see how high the water level will ultimately be: the white sign on the hill shows the ultimate water level. The river has already risen most of the way it will rise — a woman from Australia who leads tour groups told us she noticed a real difference from her last trip, last year. But it’s all still quite impressive and beautiful, as I hope you agree. Shennong is in between the second gorge and the beginning of the third gorge…I think…Steve will comment if I’m wrong, since I’m pretty sure he’s got the map at home with him :-). In any case, we were getting pretty close to where the dam is now in operation, but going up Shennong Stream we were also going back uphill basically.
