Blue Mesa calls me

Blue Mesa Lake provides added beauty to the Gunnison area in Colorado.

“Colorado is a landlocked state, but plenty of Rocky Mountain lakes and reservoirs offer miles of shoreline to swim in and sun yourself by each summer. Blue Mesa Reservoir — part of Curecanti National Recreation Area — is the state’s largest body of water, which means abundant recreation and lounge-worthy beaches.”

We didn’t know what to expect while traveling along highway U.S. 50 toward the Blue Mesa Lake but soon saw firsthand how beautiful the area was. Then we approached the Blue Mesa Reservoir.  

It was apparent the lake depth was down a little – probably awaiting the winter’s snow and water deluge – but the level allowed a different view that includes some of the sandy and rocky surfaces.  

Here is a little video clip of the approach to the lake area.  I’ll post more this week about the Blue Mesa Dam and river outflow.  

Blessings along the way!
