Reading the thread on the long gone San Juan Marina was really interesting and made me start thinking about the Hite Marina. My family really enjoys the North end and have been fortunate to camp and launch out of Hite a few times in 2017 and again this year. We always talk about how great it must have been when the lake was higher and the marina was in service. I was there in the late 70's or early 80's but really can't recall much about it.
I struck out in looking for some aerials of the San Juan Marina, but really enjoyed the mid 80's pictures that Powellbride shared. In looking for those I happened upon the above aerial in the historic images on Google Earth, so thought I would post this one. Its neat to see the concrete ramp "in the water" and also the Marina itself down near what I know as the "primitive ramp". The houseboats out on the Buoy field are neat too, I did not realize that was where the marina actually was, nor recall how it was laid out. I though some of you might enjoy this, my wife and I did...
I have included a few pictures looking down on Hite from the Hite Overlook Area across the lake, off of State Highway 95 (Bicentennial Highway) and a picture or two of more recent activity at the primitive ramp!
I look forward to any Hite information anyone may provide...
Thanks for looking...
