    Back to hiking after the hot summer. But this time i started the Maclehose trail with just one friend with me.

    I was fascinated by the color of the water and how amazing this reservoir was made by man. So big, funny, but it's the first time i ever set foot on a reservoir like the High Island Reservoir.

    And the way the Coffer barrier was piled up in the East Dam, it's awesome.

    Yes, that coffer dam's impressive: giant odd shaped blocks of concrete, to guard against typhoon waves.

    Hope you also enjoyed the jointed rock formations in the area.
