This afternoon I stopped at BL on this warm beautiful day! I put the therm in my SSD and started my laps. After doing 2 laps I started back around, but then just went around the eastern island and then back around. 2.5 miles.
During my swim I treaded water while I opened up my SSD and took out the thermometer. I wanted to see what the difference was in readings from the surface versus 2 feet under where I could really feel the difference. On the surface out in the middle of the lake it was 60.9°, but two feet under it was 56.6°. That was in a relatively warm part of the lake.
Every once in a while someone asks me "Bountiful Lake? Don't you mean Bountiful Pond?" It seems that the term pond and lake is used interchangeably for the lake. I prefer "Lake". It sounds more significant. A pond sounds like a little thing. But BL is 1 mile around. So that is a Lake! Here's the marker for the lake, for proof that I'm not just building it up to something more than it really is.
