Lac du Salagou

Lac du Salagou
This photo was taken on a walk around the shore of this reservoir - 26 Kms. The Red Sandstone "Ruffes" rocks, eroded in the foreground, are typical of the area around the Salagou. The lake is used as a reserve for hydro-electric generation and also as a water supply for the Canadair aircraft used for "water bombing" forest fires during the summer. Watching them fill their tanks while flying low over the lake is quite a sight!
