I hadn't visited Barker Dam in quite some time and after seeing water at Surprise Tank, I figured a visit was in order. The day I went, I had the whole place to myself for a couple of hours which was a real treat. It was cold of course, but nice and quiet. A slight breeze came up at one point which created some ripples on the surface of the water adding a nice effect. Early morning is definitely the best time to go before the crowds get there. No big horn sightings this time alas. Next time.
