More scenes from a shrinking reservoir
FRISCO — The low level in Dillon Reservoir isn’t all bad (although it’s going to be bad news for Denver and the local marinas if we have another dry winter). I’ve been taking advantage of the low water to trek out amonst what used to be islands, are are now convoluted peninsulas, gaining access to view points that would otherwise only be available in summer by boat. Some of the big bays have turned into tiny coves, and some of the coves are now isolated ponds. It’s quite interesting to see the shape of the land that’s usually covered with water, and the exposed shorelines should make for some great XC skiing this winter once the snow comes.
