Lassiter Mill Dam, Raleigh, NC

These pictures were taken at Lassiter Mill Dam (click here for history of Lassiter Mill)
if you enlarge the picture you'll notice a Blue Heron on the left side of this
picture on the bank. What a wonderful surprise it was to see him.
I had my video set hoping he'd fly off. All he did was move his head from side to side.

Below is a still picture of Lassiter Mill Dam.
Before the fine new houses were built, here historic Lassiter Grist Mill
was located in this area. It was a working mill for corn and flour.

Below is a video of the Lassiter Mill Dam it feeds into Crabtree Creek.
The Dam still sounds very powerful and as far as I know this is the only 'waterfall' in Raleigh.
Yes this area is in a flood zone...which is why all the houses are built on stilts.

    Thanks for asking about my nose. The swelling is almost gone but I'm still having issues with scar tissue on the surface of my nose that I am getting treatment for now. Just have to wait and see?
