Canyon Lake Filled

As you Know Canyon Lake was Drained, Now its refilled and opened for Boating again. I took a bunch of Pictures over time before it was drained, after it was drain, and after it was filled up again.

Here are some pics of the lake before it was drained and after it was drained.

Here are some pics of us walking around on the bottom of the dried lake bed.

During the Time of the draw down it rained and washed away a lot of sediment, and here are some pictures of lake bed after it rained.

As you can see in the above photos the rain lowered the floor of the lake down a good 10 to 15 feet.

Over the time of the Lake draw down I was able to get before and after pictures so here are some of those.

On my last trip to Canyon lake after they had filled it, I had just bought a new Digital Camera so my Girlfriend and I took Photos of everything we thought to be Interesting to us and we took photos of each other also. She had a small digital camera of her own. Here are some of the photos we took with our cameras.

After we had finished walking around taking photos we had lunch at the LAKESIDE RESTAURANT & CANTINA Here are some Photos from the Balcony where we sat and ate our lunch.

Amanda ordered a Philly cheese steak, and she loved it. I ordered a Double hamburger and it was really good. We were the only ones to eat outside because people thought it was too cold outside. After we finished eating we left to go home and we came upon someone trying to get back to town on a flat tire, He was going a whole five miles an hour.

As you can see in the photo he has no spare tire. We had to pass him three times because we stopped to take photos as we left the lake.
