Here is Uvas Reservoir now, during our drought. The water is usually much higher.
Still, that is better than it was five months ago before we had even modest rain amounts. Here is the same spot in October below.
Below is another part of Uvas reservoir now, during our drought.
You have to go a ways down to get to the water. Still, that is better than it was in October as seen below.
It is amazing how many gallons of water that difference represents at just one of many reservoirs we have. I look forward to comparing these photos to future wet and dry years. Interestingly, when it is wet, or wetter, dry, or drier, there always seems to be people out here finding some form of recreation. I didn’t capture it in photos but there are at least 20 people around me as I took these photos on both dates fishing, walking, relaxing, and taking photos.
