It costs payload to recover the boost vehicle. Especially to bring it back to launch site rather than a barge. Then again, the barge costs money. SpaceX has done a fantastic job of advancing the technology. The space race was us vs Russia. We launched the Saturn5 on 5 huge engines. The Russians tried to light 30 engines on their first stage with horrible results.

Nicely done - It's good to have foreground items to give the sense of scale.

Yes. Hopefully another great winter can fill it up. But hey, at least there is a lake. Compare it joe to the mid 1900s, where it was near empty.

carter, when the lake is full you can take a tin boat (or kayak) all the way to the bridge. i miss taking a boat over, having monday tacos at the moose lodge, and going home on the south shore by boat with no trouble at all from the authorities. just needs ten more feet of mother nature's water...

FYI the lake never goes up in the summer the monsoons just stop/slow it from getting lower

Maybe they can zoom the camera way back so we can watch the fireworks online.

Mom and dad were both feeding him yesterday too. I thought that was strange since he's been feeding himself for awhile. Maybe they know he's about to fledge and they are holding on to their little boy?

Now he is up and acting normal. Thank you Critter Ranch. I guess he is not an early bird! Likes to sleep in.
