old timber crib on the Barron River in Algonquin Park

(photo by Bob: 2015-05-06) 

Remains of a Rock Crib. This is between St. Andrews Lake and High Falls Lake and is upstream of the falls and at the bottom end of the pond. There is another crib on the far shore. It is likely that the logs were boomed here before being fed down the narrow log chute along the far shore and around the falls -- one log at a time. There may also have been a dam here, but if so, it was probably only high enough to divert sufficient water into the chute and to keep the pond filled. We know from the sketch, The Waterfall, that most of the flow went over the falls.
