Waters from the Wilderness

Today I took a trip to the Pulgas Water Temple. It’s only open on weekdays, so I stopped by for a few minutes late in the day. I took these pictures on my Canon EOS 6D with my go-to 17-40 f/4 L lens.

This stone structure near Interstate 280 commemorates the completion of the Hetch Hetchy Water Project.

Water from the Sierra Nevada mountains can be heard rushing past a waterfall in the center of the temple. A reflection pool in front of the temple makes this a beautiful place to visit.

Inscribed on the frieze and above the waterfall is a wonderful reminder of God’s provision:

I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people. Isaiah XLIII:XX.
