Maclehose trail inc High Island Reservoir

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.

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.

Yeah those hexagonal (i think)shaped so big, i can't imagine how they piled up those concrete in there. and those jointed rocks, love it.
