In the fall 2007 KLRA newsletter, members were invited to submit their suggestions for the Seven Wonders of Kahshe Lake. Seven folks submitted a total of 24 suggestions. I know many of you who did not submit suggestions have their favourite part of being at Kahshe.

The judges had a difficult task selecting from the 24 amazing pictures, so they decided to include them all, and a couple of complimentary ones, as part of The Seven Wonders of Kahshe. The photographers have graciously given us permission to mount them on the KLRA web site.

Missy Mandel: Blue Heron, Pileated Woodpecker;

Greg Gulyas: Herons, Pileated Woodpecker;

Jenny Nice: Herons, Hummingbird, Turkey Vulture;

Randy Craig: Hummingbird;

That was the category for the beautiful sunrises, sunsets, clouds and rainbows. Weather is a big part of our lives on the lake.

There are so many islands in Kahshe, we sometimes take them for granted. While many of the submissions had different subjects, it’s amazing how many included islands were on islands or taken from islands.

Who would have guessed we would have winter as a Wonder of Kahshe? But three submissions focus on the beauty and enjoyment of the winter on Kahshe.

Vital to water purification, marshes, and beaver dams that create their own environment are another category.

  Natural Phenomena

It was hard to name this category, but it is easy to understand why the ‘leaning pine’ seemingly growing out of rock, and the beautiful wildflowers – part of the regeneration in the land adjacent to the new South Kahshe Lake dam are part of the Seven Wonders of Kahshe Lake.

Although this submission was focused on the ducks, the judges’ view that the young girls, one with her arm around the other’s shoulder, was a perfect example of friends enjoying nature at Kahshe Lake.
