TurboJack, Kitten, Audiofn and Dean Ferry,

Thanks for you response and concern. I do not know why they dont want people walking around the lake. it Must be some kind of safety issue. I can understand about the four wheelers though I dont like it. Here is a small pic taken from the air that was on High-Rock web site. It said that someone had defaced Alcoa property by mowing a giant smiley face on the main lake area. They wont let anyone do any mowing and I cant figure that one out either. Grass has grown so high around some of the docks you cant hardly see them. They are curently trying to get Alcoa to change the amount of water they let out every day that might help bring it back up a little. Plus we have just had 4 days of rain.

This lake is not a huge lake by any means, nor is it a deep lake, but in fact it used to be a lake. The average depth is between 15' to 20' and the max depth around 50'. There are 366 miles of shoreline and is 12,200 acres. There are homes from shacks to million mansions. Boats from dingys to 38 fountians.

Here are a few pics that I had to reduce the bytes on before they would post.

Flashback,
These pictures are unbelievable. How are the wells holding up?
I hope you get the rain you so desperately need.

You don't know what drought is until you come to the west coast; ie Lake Mead and Lake Powell. But thats more expected in the desert climates.
Then you see the news of severe flooding in Germany and Korea. Whats up with the Rain Gods? Even Texas got clobbered this summer.
