No Parking


In the morning I walked around a little and came across this.  Why is there a No Parking sign?

I continued up the slope and took in the view of the various lake water levels of the past.

I looked behind me from where I had walked and it then became clear to me why the sign.
See the sign back down there?

We are camped past the base of the old earthen boat ramp!
Back in the day they didn’t want people parking where they launched boats from.

The boat marina down the slope from where we are parked hasn’t been used in probably decades.  The house boat there has tumbleweeds on it.  Off to the right high and dry is a pontoon platform with a water slide and another platform with a high tower that I suspect a lifeguard once sat in.  
Long ago this must have been a popular water sports play area.  
Never again.

Bad drought, that's for sure. Apparently it extends throughout the West, and also Mexico. Someday we're all going to be climate refugees.

Looks like it was a fun place a long time ago. I didn't know there was such a drought in the west.
