I learned to swim in that pond. Scariest thing ever. We were lined up in rows, tallest first, and walk in to waist or shoulder deep cause it drops off quickly. Then practice strokes, breathing etc. in the muddy water. Possibly muddy as the cows would come down for a drink across the way. Eventually got it. Lots of fun jumping off the dam.

Didn’t know you could go around it.

Dirty water back then, probably dirtier now. Geese and ducks have replaced the cows. Nice trail around the pond, but watch where you step.

It was dirty then in the pond but much nicer down stream of the paper mill where it changed colors frequently.
