Welcome to Green Lakes

Green Creek is located south of Bridgeport. Take Highway 395 south for five miles, turn right on a dirt road and follow it to Green Creek. You may walk from there to Green Lake. The dynamo pond at Green Creek was the site of the first long distance commercial transmission of electricity which went in a straight line. It seems the French engineers in 1892 thought electricity would run off the wire if the wire curved or turned. This line ran from Green Creek to the Standard Mill in Bodie.
