These photos were taken in December, 2005. It was overcast and raining a bit when these were taken.
The first photo is of the levee which seperates the upper and lower lakes. The levee is the slope on the right. In total, it's three miles long. You can drive down the length of the top of the levee. The big ditch looking thing at the bottom of the levee is... a ditch for drainage.
View of the lower lake area from the top of the levee. Trees are the picnic and camping areas, the tip of the lower lake is to the left. This photo is maybe 5% of the lower lake area. The upper lake extends for miles.
