SUMMIT COUNTY —The low level of Dillon Reservoir is a bit concerning when you think about the overall water and climate situation in Colorado — especially if we have anything but a solid, at least average snowfall winter. But the low level also opens up new opportunities for wandering out to places you’d usually need a boat to get to, especially on the shallow end around Frisco and Heaton Bay. It’s quite amazing to see how fast plants reclaim the land. Even with the water dwindling, it’s still one of my favorite places to take photos.
