That does not stop outdoor enthusiasts from getting outside and enjoying the wildlife and nice weather. The dam walk stretches for 7 miles one way. I only did two miles because I wanted to be back to my truck before sunset.
Bicyclists use this high view dam trail frequently. I saw three on my walk. It is always level and the views are very nice whether by foot or bike. Runners were enjoying the trail, too. I say trail but it is actually a paved road used for maintenance on the dam and the flood gates further up the road.
Our local soccer leagues have built several fields below the dam and it is full of kids and parents on the weekends and evenings. It is a big deal here and I wonder if it is more popular than football because it seems everyone turns out for it.

I am confident that one day this lake and the others in the area will be full of water again. I don't know if I will be alive to see it but I would not doubt if rains would begin to fill it up sooner rather than later.

My travel trailer is home now, parked behind my house. The repairs were done as promised however I was somewhat disappointed with the quality of the clean up. It looks like they kind of rushed the job and did not care so much about how it finally looked. But it certainly looks a lot better than what it did before: broken side fenders. I am happy to have that done and paid for. Hopefully I will have no more problems with that.
I am experimenting with taking time lapse photos of interest. Here is my first practice of a sunset Tuesday night. It is not a very good example but I am learning the ins and outs of the feature on the iPhone. It is very simple to use but it sure uses up the battery juice. Maybe I'll have a good one to show you soon. It is about 30 seconds.
Thank you for those of you sending me several ideas about what to see and do in Laughlin, Nevada. I appreciate your suggestions and have them on my list. I'll report on the trip during the week when I go in March.
To err is human. - Alexander Pope
If you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. ~ Matthew 6:14
