The two RV Gypsies walked the 2-mile long paved trail that followed a portion of the Obed River for over half its length (which was not very long).

The G.E. Harrison & J. Ridley Mitchell Dam was built here in 1930. It was 16 feet high at the head of the lake, 20 feet deep at its deepest. It broke the next year and by 1932 was completely collapsed. The two RV Gypsies photographed what was left of the dam.

The path looped around past some apartment buildings and all along the way, there were several different type of exercise equipment. The two RV Gypsies briefly tested several of the exercise equipment to see how they functioned.
