Lake Corralitas: Gopher Tunnel Drains Kept Water Levels Down

Considering the Mt. Washington Weather Station recorded 10" of rain since December 17, the gophers did a great job draining the water out of the low point of Lake Corralitas. However, most of the meadow seems to be under a couple of inches of water, hidden by the grass. I still haven't trudged through the muck in Red Car Canyon Lake. Wear your wellies!
