lake hilbert

I went to visit my brother and his family last Sunday and while I was there I took some pictures of the lake to show how far down the water level is.   All the mud you see in the pictures used to be covered with water.  You’ll notice that the docks don’t even reach the water anymore.

The water used to be right up to where the tall grass starts in this picture, except for the area to the right where the tree is.  The dock used to be at the far left, but they moved it out farther, and now it is at the far right, but you can only see a tiny bit of it in this picture.  This lake has a lot of mud at the bottom, probably about two to three feet, but the water is only a few inches above the muck here in this area and my brother said you can walk right across the lake here now, in fact, the kids from across the lake did just that last weekend.

Lake Hilbert is made up of 3 sections.  They are referred to as first lake (the one I’m on in this shot), and in this picture you can see a small channel that leads into the second lake.  There is another channel that leads from the second lake into the third lake, but you can’t see it in this picture, but it would be on the right.
