Kennedy Lake, BC

There are a lot of lakes on Vancouver Island,
and by far one of the prettiest is Kennedy Lake.
Kennedy Lake is the largest fresh water lake on
Vancouver Island.
It is also an important salmon spawning habitat
for sockeye salmon and trout.

The Northern arm of Kennedy Lake is
called Clayoquot Arm.
Clayoquot Arm Provincial Park
is located on the western shores of this arm,
and is a protected area from Vancouver Island's
logging industry.

Kennedy Lake was named after
Sir Arthur Edward Kennedy
who was appointed governor of
Vancouver Island in 1863.

Kennedy Lake offers
some beautiful vistas from the
Pacific Rim Highway (Highway#4) that hugs
her southern shores. The whole
area here is steeped in nature at her finest.
Huge trees are a common sight along
the drive, and resident eagles offer
the visitor their haunting cries
echoing through the mountains.

A true paradise, one that
needs to be savored over time and
many more visits.

Looks like a very pretty lake!
I didn't have any idea there were that many lakes on the island. Guess I never thought about it!
