Honey Lake

Honey Lake from Tanner Ranch, March 18, 2017

First of all, I want to thank those who stopped by and checked out Saturday’s Estate Sale.  It should be duly noted that there will be a Phase Two Sale, since there is still more to assort through.

Instead of being at the sale for numerous reasons, I journeyed out to the family (Tanner) ranch to have a glimpse of Honey Lake. There are various features there, that provides a good indicator of the level of the lake.

While there is considerable water in the lake, it still has a way to go before it reaches historic levels.  This evident of the above and below photographs, both showing the blacksmith shop.

However, for some people, seeing water in Honey Lake is something they have never seen. I am currently working on a future post about the tugboat that was originally used in the San Francisco Bay, that plied the waters of Honey Lake from 1907-1915. In addition, if you want to learn more about the history of the lake, you can purchase a copy of my book Sagebrush Reflections: The History of Amedee and Honey Lake.

  1. Nice to see a glimpse of your family ranch. I worked their for Five Dot in the early 80’s brought back some memories, and I do remember one year the water being at the stretch gate you have in photo.
