... majestic pelicans, a hunting fox, proghorns, cattle, and a lot of wind. Well, it's Wyoming.

The upper (western) part of the lake is pretty shallow. Appearance of coastlines and islands is changing with water level.

Lake Hattie 9/20/2003.

Evening paddling with Connie. We took Surfrigger and Sea Wind.

Windy as usual. Some happy windsurfers. No power boats. Low water level. It was plenty of water in the lower part of the lake and it was possible to paddle to the upper part through a narrow windy but quite deep channel. However, the the entry to the upper lake was blocked by weeds and mud.
