Pleasant Valley Lake
N36° 30.557' & W112°
This is a great place to get away from the tourists and enjoy some
peace and quiet (If you are a tourist, you can still visit if you don't
disrupt the peace and quite!). If you visit this location, don't forget
the picnic lunch and the camera. You will need to pay close attention
or you will miss the turn-off from the highway (N36° 30.790' &
W112° 08.258'). You will need to have a 4X4 with high-clearance! If you
are new to 4-wheeling, you might want to have someone with the
experience follow you (or lead you) on the way to the lake. I would not
go there if it is wet or going to rain.
first got there and parked, we saw a crane take off and fly into the
trees. We didn't have time to get the camera ready and missed getting
the picture. We did manage to get some great pictures otherwise, a
toad, a bee and I think maybe a katydid. We didn't take any pictures of
the fossils, but we did see some nice specimans, so keep your eyes open.
Here is a link to our video of the road heading in to the lake.-- Going in to the lake.

You Tube is not broken -- there is no sound for either one.
Turn here and head downhill.
Where we parked.
The toad was big you could cover it with a quarter.
The bee and katydid(?)
