|Republican River west of Bonny Reservoir|
Aside from the controversy that surrounds the reservoir it is a special place. In years gone by we and thousands of others have fished and played on or around the lake. It is sad to see only a hand full of boats using the lake on a Sunday afternoon now. In years gone by, one would have to patiently wait ones turn to unload a boat.
We enjoyed our sandwiches, looked for birds, went across the dam to the north side, the above photo is of the spillway at the north end of the dam. The north cove had water in it earlier this spring, but that has since been released down the river. Odd isn't it that the river flow is measured in NE. Some more of garbage we have inherited from the idiots who signed the compact and revisited it around 2000. Oh, yes, Ken Salazar was involved in that. He loves selling out the residents of Colorado, east slope or west slope, he has qualms about ruining our economies.
