Where Is This?

Here is sort of a Cellar Research Project. I was StumbleUpon-ing the other night, and came across this pic of a reservoir. On a mountain. Shaped, apparently, like a heart. I mucked around on Google Image Search for about an hour, searching for every variation on 'heart-shaped reservoir' I could think of, and got zilch.

I'm hoping some far-flung Dwellar will recognize the reservoir, or the area, or something. Or, perhaps, have angrier Googling skillz.

So, I put it to you, Cellar:

Where is this? Is it really shaped like a heart, or is perspective punking me out?

BTW: I don't know where this is. But, I bet someone solves this.

Google image search for: reservoir mountain top
led to a copy of the same image identifying it as being in Iron County MO,
so I searched: Iron County Missouri reservoir
and found it.

I googled something like "artificial reservoir on mountain" and didn't see it.

Google does one every day. (Today's is a little unusual, actually. Generally they're more historical/researchy. Yesterday's is a better example.)
