Several deer ran down the side of the road and just missed seeing a mother bear and her two cubs crossing the Dam.

We stopped at the Summersville Dam to have a view of the lake. There's an overlook beside the road. It was a beautiful sunny day that made for some great photos.

It is 2,280 feet long and at 390 feet tall it is almost as high as a forty story building.It is what is described as a "rock-fill dam" and is the second largest of this type in the eastern US..You can stick your toes in, fish from the rocks, or just admire the scene. It is worth a look. There is also a little hidden FREE campground in the parking lot with potty facilities
