I’ve spent the last five days in Southern California, driving from Northern Cal to Southern Cal last Thursday for a little getaway.
My photos for this week’s challenge, water, must start with how Southern Cal get’s a lot of it’s water from Northern California, via the California Aqueduct, the Wheeler Ridge Pump Station. The pump station is on the southern end of the San Joaquin Valley and as it’s first step, lifts water from the California Aqueduct vertically 2,000 feet over the Tehachapi Mountains; from there it flows downhill to Los Angeles.
Once the water is up and over the Tehachapis, we can enjoy some of the water I’ve seen in Southern California
Water is precious. Use it wisely.
