The Tower at Big Lake in Modern Times

July 31, 2010

Below is re-posting of the photograph of Monte at the observation tower at Big Lake in 1968.  Below that is a more current photograph as how the tower looked a few years ago.

Many years ago when the tower at Big Lake was at its most functional, people standing at the top of the tower could actually see out over Big Lake.  Back then, the silver maple trees and willow trees did not block the view  and when the trees shed their leaves, the tower could be seen from Big Lake if one knew where to look and was in a proper position on Big Lake to be able to see the observation tower.

Since then, the trees have grown too high to see Big Lake and the wood to the observation tower has become to rotten or fallen away and it is no longer safe to attempt access to the top.
