An SNU rally and a look at the newest NSP effort

Fort Churchill anchors one end of the Nevada State Parks Carson River run that extends to the Lahontan reservoir. The SNU held its October rally there, See the SNU Fort Churchill page for links to photo galleries.

The group took a day trip to visit NSP’s latest river run, the Walker River State Recreation Area. Check out the photo galleries and links! The area is on the East Walker as it runs from Bridgeport to Yerrington between Sweetwater summit and Walker Lake. NSP acquired land from several ranches in the valley for its recreation facilities and river access.

SNU Rally Eagle Lake May 2017

The pictures are up! The rally this time was at the North Eagle Lake BLM campgound. See the Eagle Lake Rally Page for gallery links and other information.

Eagle Lake Rally May 2017

This from collection #2 – See the photo gallery! The link to collection #1 is on  the Eagle Lake Rally Page.

The campground is ‘old style’ BLM which means the camp sites tend to be rather small and maneuvering rather difficult. Phil, the host, says this rally had more campground visitors than he’s seen before. It’s usually a quiet place without too many visitors.

The California DOT has quite a rundown on CA 139 (PDF) which is the route from Klamath Falls to Susanville and goes by Tule Lake and the Lava Beds National Monument before it gets to Eagle Lake then over Antelope Pass to Susanville. The scenery is special but the road is rather difficult for larger, modern RV’s as the lanes are narrow and shoulders nearly non-existent. It is an old road.

Water water (almost) everywhere

Silver Fox took note of the High Water Across the West: Honey Lake with a lot of pictures. She has links to pictures of the lake from previous years, too.

I’ve recently had the opportunity to travel across part of the Great Basin of eastern California and northern and central Nevada, and have noticed a lot of high water, almost everywhere. Honey Lake, which has been dry to only partly filled during the last several years, is once again a lake.

There’s also a new photo gallery: 2017 – A wet year in Northern Nevada with pictures of the ‘dry’ lakes on U.S. 395 north of Reno (but south of Honey Lake). Here’s White Lake near Cold Springs and Bordertown as seen from the freeway.

 

White Lake

 

The rally this weekend will provide some more pictures of Honey Lake and Eagle Lake so stay tuned!

Lahontan 2017

The SNU rally at the Lahontan Nevada State Park Beach 7 in March 2017 was a nice weekend given usual Nevada spring weather. The big event was watching the lake level rise as water was held to allow spillway maintenance. That put the kibosh on the campfire after the first morning as the fire pit was drowned.

See the rally page and the destination page for more about the event and the place. Some of the new or updated photo galleries include Lahontan Scenery -|- Lahontan water levels 2012 and 2017 -|- The Disappearing fire pit -|- Lahontan Review 1996 to 2017.

Lahontan Rising

Here’s the view towards the lake. The water is part of an inlet with the major part of the lake over the berm in the upper part of the picture. 

The lake is a reservoir fed by the Carson River and the Truckee river via the Newlands Project. It is used to irrigate farmland near Fallon. The excess goes into the Stillwater Wildlife Refuge and there has been work done on US 50 and US 95 to provide culverts and other preparations anticipating a record runoff from this year’s snowpack in the Sierras.
