We drove out to Moon Lake a few days ago. With the high snowpack in the mountains beginning to melt, we expected the lake (actually a reservoir) to be full.
Not so. The water managers had let out as much water as possible, preparing for record amounts of water expected to flow down from the High Uintas as temperatures rise and melt the snow.
Here's the reservoir on June 24, 2010, at close to full capacity.
On the way, we saw this pretty elk cow grazing near the road.
She must be used to cars passing. She was curious, but not overly concerned about us. I hope she develops a better sense of caution before hunting season.
