Lake Dolores ...

Those of you from Southern Ca, or Vegas that have taken the trip from Vegas to So Cal will know what this is. Lake Dolores is a random water park that opened in the 60s and failed, later on in 2000 it was renamed and they tried to reopen it, however once again it failed. Its not an abandoned water park thats been sitting empty for some time now. I have driven by it 1000x and decided to stop and check it out on Sat on my way home back to Vegas, luckly I had my Canon G9 P&S with me and shot some pics trying to show how errie the place is. So enjoy:

Great shots!

Now I dont have to stop there to check it out myself, thanks!

And that horribly disfigured statue next to the "big squirt" looks eerily life-like!

Lake Dolores was the worst idea ever. Cool photos though. The slides were up until an episode of Rob & Big aired where they stopped there and skated down the slides. The slides were taken down by the next time I drove by that place.

So I assume there is no cool photo spots for a car shoot or else you would have taken some?
