Jackson Lake The lake is really low – in fact as of August 1st, it was at 62% of it’s 847,000 acre capacity It is estimated that it will be at 18% capacity by the end of September.

The dairy farming industry has been increasing in Idaho because of water restrictions in California that forced dairy farmers to move elsewhere – Idaho

One of the many pools by Yellowstone Lake at West Thumb. Love the colors
