Falls Lake

This is  beautiful small lake near Badin NC.  It is formed by a dam called Falls Dam.  Above Falls like is Badin Dam forming Badin lake.  These dams were built by Alcoa to generate electricity when they had a aluminum smelter near by.  Now, Alcoa sells the electricity back to Duke energy.  The weather was better than awesome.  75 degrees and completely cloudless.
