Entwined


One of the most distinct features of Timothy Lake are the many stumps left behind from when the dam was built at the south end in 1956, regulating the flow to Harriet Lake downstream and creating the lake we know today. The roots of this stump are still entwined and I think it is incredible that the old reminders of the forest that once was still exist after all these years.
