Bartlett Reservoir, North of Scottsdale, Arizona USA
Arizona
Bartlett Reservoir is one of several large reservoirs surround the Metropolitan Phoenix area in central Arizona. The reservoirs provide a steady water supply to the United State’s 6th largest city and also provide recreational activities such as boating, water skiing and wake boarding. Arizona is, at the time this panorama was taken, experiencing a long term drought and the lake level is substantially below normal. Bartlett Reservoir is one of two on the Verde River. Most of the other much larger reservoirs are on the Salt River, north and east of the Salt River Valley, where Phoenix and the surrounding communities are located. This panorama illustrates the barren nature of the desert surrounding these unusual bodies of water. The picture is taken from a huge boat ramp and staging area. Almost all the watercraft on the lake are towed to the lake by trailers behind trucks. It is often surprising to drive the highways and see truck after truck pulling boats when there is no water in sight.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
