Anyone know the purpose of these ponds - they don't look natural - very rectangular. Something to do with Coors?

None of the lakes around in the area are natural, they were all built for various reasons. Usually they are farmers' reservoirs created for irrigation purposes.

Other lakes were created when gravel pits were abandoned and filled with water. Companies mine gravel in very close proximity to streams and rivers. This is the case with the lakes next to Applewood. All the lakes that are adjacent to the creeks and rivers around here are former gravel pits.
