Stillwater in Winter

Joli, our Border Collie, at Stillwater.

The flow was once a forest with two sizable streams meeting down toward where the dam is today. Lumbering in the 1800s took huge trees like this white pine. The stumps are covered by water during the summer. Hazards like this and great piles of rocks near the surface, maybe eskers left by the retreating glaciers, keep the power boaters away for the most part, making this lake great for fishing and canoeing.
