Washoe Lake, then and now

March 21, 2017

Washoe Lake, just south of Reno, dried up as a result of the multi-year drought in Nevada and much of the southwestern U.S. Record precipitation over the winter of 2016-2017 filled the lake and then some. The lake is part of Washoe Lake State Park.

    Glad you have water again, but hate that it’s all or nothing these days.
