This time of the year when the snow is melting up high and we are not in the midst of a drought, it is fun to watch the water roar down the North Spillway through the original Bureau of Reclamation gate.
The gate was recently re-done and looks to be good to go for another few decades.
When the night air starts to cool the area, the rushing water creates numerous rainbows. The full lake once again has the small waterfall north of the spillway going again.
At my age, it seems like summers are as much looked forward to as when I was a kid growing up.
Let the fun begin – it’s summer – again.
