Recall when I went on ad nauseum about my struggles with the Lower
Walker River map as I was trying to document (in part) the struggles

between Hoover and Davis Dams) is that the river has lost its battle
with a lake by virture of having been dammed downstream. Thus, all of
the bluish-greenish units are submerged under the lake. I was able to map these features with reasonable confidence using

gotten my hot little hands on a pre-dam aerial photo mosaic of the map
area. Revision time!
