    Wow , is that a high water mark, or change in rock structure?

    Pretty sure high water mark. The water levels have been drastically declining.
     
  7. Its also silting up. Even when it does get filled it won't be the needed volume.

    I agree, all the dam/reservoirs in the southwest are stressed. Lake Powell looks the same. :cry:

    Our summer spot this morning. Moving up next week. Mt. Rainier (on a good day) would be visible to the right, we're facing south towards Seattle.

    Looks nice!
    Unfortunately my summer spot will only have a view of a ditch with a pipe in it. :cry:
