@robgski: Nice how one doesn't easily see the scale at first, only after recognizing the plants. Is it just shade that turns the water so blue?

The "Turbinengraben" (turbine ditch), one of the countless facilities in the Harz mountains that were built to manage water supply for powering mining equipment and - as in this case - machines in workshops.

Nice to have that story with the photo, Jens. Is there anything left at the tail end of the “ditch”?

Not for this one, just parts of the distribution channels before it flows back into the river, but no buildings anymore.

That’s a shame, although there are probably others that have survived. I have a friend who seeks out old mine workings and the like in the Tasmanian bush. Often, there’s only a few building foundations or large cast-iron machine parts left, but the isolation has helped keep them in place.

The area is, in comparison, densely populated and mining dates back several hundred years and of course crafts and manufacturing have been modernized over time - until a lot of local manufacturing went to bigger plants elsewhere. Locals are mindful of their history and there is a lot of preservation going on, several former mines in the area have been secured and are open to visitors. For the small channel in the picture, it may have belonged to the sawmill, which was once there - earliest written records (bookkeeping) from 1507. I didn't find when it closed down, but the area became one of the early tourist destinations at the end of the 19th century. It may have given way to the narrow gauge railroad (1899), which traverses the river at the mouth of the valley where the channel ends. It's the largest European narrow-gauge network still in service today, serving both public traffic needs and tourism. I'll read up on the channel on my next visit, the local club has put up some information boards. Not everything gets published on the internet :-)

Recently undertook a long postponed hike down on a local trail which ends at a dam. With all the rain we just had, I'll have to return. Just to the right of the frame about 50 meters, there is a beaver lodge, with signs of recent activity.

On the walk to the much larger Pearson's Falls, you go ball several of these dripping waters

Beaver on the phone to fellow beaver who lives far in the wilderness: "I'm just fixing up the house. Humans take care of the yard work"
