7/9/07---The Alton Fire Department is again washing the parking lot. This should be the last day of their cleanup effort. Notice the picture with the white tower. You sure can see how much the water has gone down. Another view is Carol walking up to the parking lot. When the water was high the ramp was downhill to the parking lot and not useable. Look at the high water marks on the fence. Remember the rock rip rap wall with the side of our boat in the picture? The water was coming over the top of the rocks in places -- now it looks huge and it is like we are down in a hole. The water level has dropped 9 feet! The swimming pool is very nice and it sure looks quiet after all the splashers that enjoyed it over the past weekend. Found a Black-crowned Night-Heron sitting quietly on the dock watching for someting in the water for a fine crustacean to eat.
