What a difference two weeks and well over 10 inches of rain make.
On July 26th, the Horsethief Canyon area of the lake would have been better described as Horsethief Pasture.
Today, August 9th, it’s full of water again. Not as full as it should be, but much, much better.
The photo below shows the Horsethief area as of today; roll your mouse over the image and you will see the levels from 2 weeks ago.
Photos from the drought of 2012, 2006 and the recovery of 2007 are all linked to from this article I wrote a year ago.
