This would be a great motel if only it were managed better. The rooms were very nice for the price, but there was no coffee filter for the coffee maker, the internet didn't work, the satellite TV was spotty, and the receptionist was so-so. On the plus side, the room was clean, the bed comfortable, had a complementary breakfast and a nice pool. It was worth the money but it could be so much better.

We loaded up on the boat which is had 35 passangers plus the interreprative ranger and a captain. Right away we were upon one of the unique things of the lake, Pretty quickly into our boat tour, we were greeted by "The Old Man" It is a 30 foot upright tree stump ...
... farm structures and hardly any farms. The few that we pass are growing grazing crops. This is sheep and cattle country so I guess they eat pretty much what will grow here.
Did I mention that this is very desolate country? If it weren't for stops at two rest areas we wouldn't have seen another soul except for those passing through in their vehicles. By the way, we pass few vehicles the rest stops didn't have many in them either.
