Hiking

Did a short hike of 3 1/2 miles at Alatoona Lake on New Years Eve.  We hiked this trail before but never when the lake had been lowered.  I ended up going off the trail and walking where the water used to be.  It made for some interesting pictures.  The day was sunny, warm and quiet beneath the trees.  It is this kind of day that I feel most alive.  :)

At present Lake Mead is 80 below normal level. There are areas of this dammed valley that have reappeared from when the lake was filled in 1934. We are able to walk around old building foundations, bridges, and other structures from the towns that were flooded. Yes it is an experience. Happy New Year.
