Spring 2011 - May 25th Ride up to Tibble - American Fork Canyon

We took a ride up to Tibble Fork Reservoir, American Fork Canyon just before Ryan was to leave to work in Moab at Entrada- Scout Camp for a month.

The lake is completely full. I don't believe I have ever seen it this high before.

My favorite fishing pole is still on the bottom of this lake! Argh...........

This is where Ryan & I usually launch our float tubes. The tree is usually out of the
water and the rock barely showing is always fully out of the water.
There is usually a little shallow bay with plenty of big rocks to
help you get in your tube and get your gear organized.

The Spillway entrance is  overflowing. No more water can be held by this dam.

This white water waterfall is usually just a trickle.
But with so much snow this year, it is tumbling happily down the mountain.

We had a nice ride, but I am sorry to say I am not excited to come fishing because the water is too high and it makes my nerves crazy!! Crazy I know, but true.

The other reason we took this drive was to see when the campgrounds for TERT were going to be opened. Not for several more weeks and maybe not in June at all. We will have to wait and see.
