On Monte Ne

We went to a great presentation on Monte Ne this morning at the museum where Heather Marie works. Monte Ne has a fascinating history, and there's a lot of interest in it right now, since Beaver Lake is so low.

We went out with our friends Bill and David to see it when they were here in December, and since we've only gotten a little rain since then, the water level is probably lower now. Still, if you've seen one part of an 80-year-old submerged resort, you've seen pretty much all of it, so we probably won't go back unless the lake falls to the same levels it did in 1977, when the entire structure was exposed. Hopefully we'll get some rain soon, though, and it won't quite get that bad.

The presentation was really good. Heather Marie and I recorded it, planning to turn it into a podcast to post on the museum's site, but the audio is going to need a lot of cleaning. This was our first real recording at the museum, and it's obvious that they're going to need to get a small mixer in order to control the audio levels better. If it's well-received, then we'll probably be helping them with some more podcast material in the next year.
