Today we hiked in an area we call the 'Upper Canyon' in Cañada de la Virgen. We took a walk (or ramble or scramble depending on your heritage) past some of my favorite areas in the canyon. Most of the time we were on the canyon rim but twice we dipped down into the bottom and walked along the streams there.

Early in the hike we crossed an old presa (dam) near the hamlet of La Angostura. Later on we met Don Juan and his burro, who live in La Angostura, out collecting firewood. Don Juan is 75 years old. He says his great grandfather built the La Angostura Presa that we crossed earlier so we are guessing that it is around 150 years old.

About 5 years ago the presa was breached intentionally to let water downstream to a newer reservoir. Before that the presa was still doing its job creating a small reservoir at La Angostura that was used for crops and livestock. The average lifespan of a dam in the US is 50 years.
