The aerial photograph below, which is courtesy of RVCA, but probably originated from the National Air Photo Library in Ottawa was taken in early April, 1976 and clearly shows the state of the lake as the ice is beginning to break up. Most of the surrounding area is still snow covered, but agricultural land and forest can be distinguished. Barker's Creek and Otter Creek can be clearly seen because both were not frozen over when the photograph was taken.
      While shoreline detail is somewhat difficult to see because of the extensive snow and ice covering, there is now significantly more development on the lake and many of the access roads can be seen.This photograph is particularly interesting in that because it was taken just before the ice went off the lake. It shows areas that are prone to flooding in the spring. The properties accessed by road 09 (bottom center) are almost on an island depending on the lake water level.
