    Not a big and impressive dam like most of the others, but a very fun road to get to it.

    This is the Saguling Dam in West Java. We got here by night and departed right when the sun was risen.

    Quoting from a 2007 ride report (The Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania):

    "The Bayliss Dam was built by a lumber company in about 1900, and it failed catastrophically on September 30th, 1911--almost exactly 96 years ago. Imagine the long valley to the left of the dam filled with water to a depth of 50' and being held back by this crude dam. The dam failure leveled the town of Austin, PA, killing nearly 80 of the 2,000 inhabitants. The lumber company, incidentally, had taken the precaution of relocating its inventory of lumber before the dam's collapse...

    "A rocky trail led to a memorial park at the base of the dam. This was not the place to be 96 years earlier, but it made a scenic photo op that day. The story of the disaster--Pennsylvania's second-worst dam failure and now largely forgotten--is available at http://www.coudy.com/Austin/Austin-dam.htm."
