1523 Red Horse Snow

Red Horse Lake Road is the only modern, overland way into our place. The best way to reach us over the centuries has always been by water - specifically by canoe. Those ancient travelers with a good imagination, invented stories to remember their routes through the maze and amazing landmarks. Someone probably fabricated the story about the naming of Red Horse Lake. It is a good story and the lasting image is the outline of the steed standing up to its belly in the deep water of the lake - apparently browsing on the Red Cedars. I will paint this rock some day... - has the outline of the horse standing in Red Horse Lake.
