I was a fantastic fall afternoon, and Furman was threatening to lose yet another game (they didn’t, though), so I decided to head out and take some photos around town. I’m not sure why, but I wound up at the Saluda Lake Dam on the west side of town. I first turned off on the downstream side of the dam and took a few shots of the railroad trestle over the river. The bridge was absolutely covered with with graffiti, and I could see this as being a spooky place to be at night.
I drove to the other side of the highway bridge, and found a parking area with access to the river. There was a very steep trail leading down to a pool at the bottom of the dam. There were several people fishing in the area. I took a few shots of water flowing over the dam and the power plant, and of a few colorful leaves.
From the dam, I took a turn through the West Side of Greenville that doesn’t attract the restaurant crowd. These are the mill villages and more humble abodes. I came upon one church with a sign that made me turn back around to catch the photo…
It turns out they were advertising one of those scare-the-Hell-out-of-you Halloween events, but out of context it really looked weird. My first thought when I saw it was, “Well, I guess they know their congregation better than I do.”
