Lake Mead

As of May 2009, the lake is currently at 43 percent of its capacity, threatening to make the Las Vegas valley's primary raw water intake inoperable. If the lake doesn't receive enough inflow this spring, problems may arise later this summer. Arrangements are underway to pipe water from elsewhere in Nevada by 2011, but since the primary raw water intake at Lake Mead could become inoperable as soon as 2010 based on current drought and user projections, Las Vegas could suffer crippling water shortages in the interim. Lake Mead draws a majority of its water from snow melt in the Western Colorado Rockies. Since 2000 the water level has been dropping at a fairly steady rate due to less than average snowfall. As a result, marinas and boat launch ramps have either needed to be moved to another part of the lake or have closed down completely.

Further research in February 2008 by the University of California in San Diego led researchers to conclude that, if future climate changes as projected and water use "is not curtailed," Lake Mead's water level could drop below the dead storage elevation by 2021, and that the reservoir could drop below minimum power pool elevation as early as 2017.

I love this camera. Pictures were taken a good distance away using 12x zoom. Wondering why paparazzi have to get that close!

Hopping along

This year we have a family of rabbits that moved in. Caught this one on camera before he hopped away. Don't look at the grass, it needs to be mowed.

Along for the ride

I don't know about you, but I'm not a fan of rollercoasters.

Especially, ones where you go upside down.

Painting or Real Life

Looking for a picture for today I came across this. I never really noticed it before, but it looks like it could be a painting with all the relections going on. No photoshopping done, this is how the image came out. Taken at the Greenville Zoo

Sometimes the bridges we have to cross seem long and impossible but eventually we make it to the other side.

Walk This Way

Which Way?

Saturday, June 6, 2009


On June 6, 1944, a date known ever since as D-Day, a mighty armada crossed a narrow strip of sea from England to Normandy, France, and cracked the Nazi grip on western Europe.
Meanwhile Bob Hope was entertaining the troops.

Water anyone?

Now, I may take photos of feet and other weird things but when my significant other does it's unintentional. He'll often walk around with the camera on and in his hand (of course his finger is on the button how else does he get these shots). This is the result.
