Ward Creek Reservoir

We took an early morning trip across Grand Mesa yesterday morning. It had rained all night and it was very wet. The clouds were moving out and then back in and the light was very nice.


For those of you that are unfamiliar with the Grand Mesa, it is the highest flat topped mountain in the world and it has at least one lake for each day of the year. There are moose on the Mesa, but we were unable to see any yesterday.


This is one of the man made reservoirs on the Mesa. The water is used for irrigation in the fields at lower elevations.


Thanks for looking,
