Tucked up in the Golden Ears Mountains is this well loved location. Allouette Lake, crowded with swimmwers and picnicers in the summer, but so quiet and peaceful in the winter. In February you can hear birdcall from across the lake. This was once a steep valley. In the early 1900s it was forested and flooded to create this artificial lake. A small dam at one end controls the water level. This photo was taken two years ago. Currently the lake is closed due to the damage from January storms.
