VALLEY OF THE SUN, SHALAL ROAD, AND MUIR SUBDIVISION

WANTING A COMMUNITY WATER SYSTEM

This webpage is made up of photos of one of the 5 ponds located at Valley of the Sun.  This pond would be located furthest into Valley of the Sun and one of the larger of the 5 ponds.

This page may take a while to load as there are many photos on this page.... just have patience.  Maybe have a game of solitaire while it finishes loading.

Click refresh to be sure you see updates.

LAST UPDATE January 25, 2015

Click on this photo to see a large more real to life panoramic view.
This is a panoramic view of one of the 4 grouped together ponds at Valley of the Sun.  This photo was taken November 15, 2007.  This pond is located to the far left side on the map below and this is the first pond you come to if you walk into the bush from the corner at Alpine and Firwood Road between the smallest of the 4 grouped together ponds and the small shack sown the dirt road.  This is not the smallest of the 4 grouped together ponds.  You cannot see this pond from the road.  Click on the photo to see a more closer real to life view of this pond.

This is a map of some of the wells located near Valley of the Sun

The blue triangle dots are the recorded wells and the red dots are the unrecorded wells that we know are here from talking to people.  We marked in the red dots meaning unrecorded wells, and we did not mark in the blue dots for the recorded wells, as they were part of this map.

Map of approx. 25 well locations at Valley of the Sun
How many wells did you count on the map above?  This is what we counted

recorded wells = 18
+
unrecorded wells = 7

so in total 25 wells at Valley of the Sun

Not sure how many of these wells have dried up or have no water, but it would be interesting to know.

We took this photo of one of the three ponds at Valley of the Sun on Dec 5, 2008.  It doesn't look like much of a lake after that last skiff of a snow fall.  This is the one large lake seen on the far left of the group of 4 lakes on this map.

One of the several lakes at Valley of the Sun
This one lake at Valley of the Sun looks a bit dried up and there are grass clumps growing in the lake but maybe this is a good place to install a cistern to contain water for irrigation and fire protection when the water does flow during spring runoff as maybe there is a spring in there?

 

Here is another angle of the same lake as the photo above at Valley of the Sun and also taken on Dec 5, 2008.  This lake is located on the furthest left hand side of the map.

Photo of Valley of the Sun lake on November 15, 2007
This photo was taken of this same lake in the photos above but on November 15, 2007 and not on Dec 5, 2008 as in other photos above.  You can tell this photo was taken in almost the same spot as the photo above this one, by looking at the white trees in each of the two photos.

 

On Dec 10, 2008 when we took these three photos below the lakes were all frozen over except in these two spots on the one lake... we wonder why?
Water that hasn't frozen in the one lake at Valley of the Sun.
This photo was taken Dec 10, 2008 at the very end of this one lake and shows a thin line of water in the ice that hasn't froze.  This photo was taken to the left of the red circled spot in the photo below and near the farthest end of this lake.

Here you can see this water line in the ice at the end of the lake at Valley of the Sun.

 

This photo taken on Dec 10, 2008 below shows where on the lake one of the two spots has not frozen over yet.
This is another spot in the one lake at Valley of the Sun that has not froze.
We wonder if maybe there is a natural spring there that the lake has not frozen over in that spot?  Wonder if there isn't a natural well aquifier we could test drill for, in and under this pond at Valley of the Sun?  There are many bull rushes growing around these lakes.  Wonder if we could test drill for water under any of these ponds?

 


This photo is a closer shot of the spot circled in red in the photo above.  The other lakes don't have any melted spots on them that we noticed but we also didn't look that hard either.

I am going to need a new camera soon as I have to bang my camera otherwise the viewer is black, and if I take a picture while the viewer is black, so is the picture.  So I bang the camera until the viewer isn't black until one day it won't work anymore.  Some of the photos I took have red in them and are blurred.  I am going to have to ask Santa for a new camera this year LOL!  But I do like this little Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 with 6x optical zoom as its fairly small and it doesn't have a huge honking lens sticking out, as the lens retracts into the camera.  And it doesn't take to bad of pictures either (when its not broken) as you can see these photos were taken with this half broken Panasonic Lumix with 6x optical zoom.  Some of the photos are dark because I was taking the photos facing the light.

Have a look at what happened to this photo .. it looks nice and pink and blurry.
Picture taken with a broken camera.
But I took some more photos after this one that did turn out.  Just gave the camera a little bang LOL!

What do these melted spots in the photos above mean in relation to a water system at Valley of the Sun?
