A Personal View of Living in Durango and the Four Corners
Tuesday, September 25, 2012
First off, I feel I should apologize for the low-quality of this picture. I took it out of the window of our work vehicle with my camera phone. That said, what you are looking at is the northern end of Lemon Reservoir, which like all the other reservoir around is suffering an extremely low level of water. All the flat, grassy area in view would normally be submerged by at least 15 feet (5 m) of water. Lemon is on the Florida River and is a storage area in the mountains for Durango drinking water. Aside from the low water, Lemon is looking really great right now. The foliage is really going off and the hillside around the area are amazing. If you find that you are in the area, do yourself a favor and check it out. It won't last long.
