Original view from Moncton...

Yesterday Mr. G. and I drove to Rattlesnake Lake to observe the strange phenomenon of the lake slowly disappearing. It was a sight to behold! 


In the early 1900's the small town of Moncton was established here. Several years later they decided to make this area into a water reservoir for the Seattle area and the town was flooded. Now that the lake levels are so extremely low, we could clearly see where it was situated and we found several foundations and chimney remnants, fascinating!

Of course this was also the weekend of Master C. and his girlfriend visiting: 'twas lovely!
