Hodges Reservoir, or Lake Hodges (San Diego)

California has been under a severe drought for several years. I visited Lake Hodges this past weekend and I could see some of the effects of the drought on the lake. Despite the absence of rain, the natural vegetation, which is adaptable to the dry conditions, is alive and still grows.

    Nonostante tutto la natura cerca di sopravvivere. Molto belle le foto. Ho pensato anche: se c’è natura nonostante la siccità chissà quanta ce ne sarebbe con l’acqua e che spettacolo si potrebbe vedere!!!
    Un caro saluto e un abbraccio. Ciao, Pat

    Thanks for posting Fabio, I used to love visiting Lake Hodges and paddling around the lake and a picnic after. Your pictures bring back fond memories.
