Great photos., thank you.
I remember when the planned park was the town of Ridgway itself, and Ridgway was fading, planning to be flooded. Then they (who?) moved it a few miles further north.

Good photos Jim! A good friend of mine lives lives up on County Road 1, am paying him a visit next week. My only complaint about the reservoir is the last 3 times I fished there, I got skunked! Grrr!

I'm told the salmon are running and folks are snagging for them. Watched some folks snag for them last weekend and they caught a good mess. Also some folks were panning for gold. This is an amazing area.

Panning isn't uncommon at all. For many years one of my neighbors (retired-worked for the U-P Railroad) panned on the Dolores river a lot. He did pull a few out in all the times he went down there, of course he was retired so time to him was irrelevant. He was prepared, had several pans, sluice boxes, the whole bit.
