I have finally had time to write a blog about the water levels this year versus last year. It was a lot more work than I thought it would be, I had to go back and forth between my 2017 and 2018 pictures to find matching areas near the same dates. I mainly wrote this blog for us as a record and to look back on next year, but I hope you enjoy it as well. 🙂
When we arrived at the park near the end of March the lake levels were the lowest we have ever seen them.
The Province of British Columbia was working diligently to lower the lake levels by letting water out at the south end of the lake, but a few weeks ago they had let out all that they could without flooding further down the Valley. The lake is now rising very quickly.
Last year I was using a cement block (which you can see in the above pictures) near the end of the path down to the beach to measure the water level.
While the lake is lower this year than last, you can see in the next three pictures how much the water has risen this year.
The following are a few pictures from a different angle, last year versus this year.
And pictures of the beach, last year versus this year.
These pictures were taken near the Beach Rental Shop and you can see how fast the lake came up this year.
It was interesting to look at the pictures of Lambly Creek, also known as Bear Creek, last year and this year.
The creek may not have been as high as it was last year on May 3rd but it did provide some excitement around that time … more on that in a future blog.
Until next time …
