The Three Small Gorges
This Was The Only Village On The River Bank.
I'm not too sure they enjoy the tourists parading by their windows every day.
135 Meters in Elevation
Near the village, this 135 meter sign reminds people of the expected water level in 2003. The planned top of the flood-control/power pool will be 175 meters when the project is completed in 2009. That's 120 feet higher than the level indicated by this sign.
A New Road Winds Along The Hillside.
Old and New Roads
The old road with its pretty bridge runs close to the river bank in this area, while a new one is marked with cuts high on the hillside. The Chinese haven't abandoned their elegant bridge designs, however.
A Footbridge Crosses The River.
While new roads are visible in some places, the old ways of transportation are still every much in use today.
