Rocky Pen Run Reservoir

After church one Sunday, we decided to take a drive and see the progress on the new reservoir they are making in Stafford County, Rocky Pen Run Reservoir.  It's weird to know that you are driving through what will eventually be the bottom of a lake.  
At it's completion, the reservoir will be 503 acres, and will hold 5.3 billion gallons of water.

 Many, many trees have been cleared.  

The road that will be at the bottom of a lake. 

No tresspassing!  Oops. 

DOWN, Down, down to the bottom

Here's a cool fly-over of the reservior, if you want to lose 5 minutes of your day and never get it back.
