Drought

I went for a drive into the Rockies with a couple of friends on the autumn equinox. The air was hazy with the smoke of wildfires from other western states, and was so thick that at times it was difficult to see the peaks. At the base of Independence Pass, we caught a person canoing out on one of the Twin Lakes. Between mudflats, you can see how low the water is. If we don’t have a wet winter, with a good spring run-off, I worry about next summer.

  1. Tell me about it. My shooting trek to western CO and Taos was hindered left and right by haze. And the lakes, gods – Blue Mesa is WAY low. Eagle Nest Lake is down. We could use a lot of snow this winter and an especially rainy summer next year.

    Nice shot, too.

    • yeah – it was astounding – as we headed down into Buena Vista, you could barely see the Collegiates – which was a shame since one of our compaions had never been over that way. Dillon Reservoir is the lowest i have ever seen it. which is really disturbing.
