It's tough to get a shot at 250 knots climbing out in a jet!!

Drove past the lake on this same date and enjoyed the view from 154--actually could see blue water and it has moved into the bays near the hwy for the first time in years. There is a sense of community security when this happens.

Nice! Remember when they were sucking water out of the mud? This is much better and way more beautiful. Cachuma has been on my mind lately, so it's nice to see the results. The geography shows how high it can go, but we still need to be prepared for the next drought when it inevitably will come. It will likely be like this last one or worse, due to climate change. But back to today's sentiment - this is very cool!

You had to stick the old climate change in there? Recall Jerry brown saying drought was the new normal the summer right before our biggest Sierra snowpack ever? California has always cycled between drought and flood. Let’s hope we never see an atmospheric rover like the 1880’s which flooded the state for months. And yes before the cars started driving.

Very nice and unusual shot! I like that you included some of the geologic formations for context, and were back far enough to show the Santa Ynez River coming in to the lake.

Thanks Max. Great overview of what 77.5% looks like. Sure a big change from a year ago!

Never seen it from that angle. Refreshing to see so much water, thanks.
