Narrows between Carcajou Creek and Lower Spectacle Lake

(photo by Diana: 2015-06-26) 

The narrows between Carcajou Creek and Lower Spectacle Lake looking towards Lower Spectacle Lake. While it may not be obvious from the photograph, we are reasonably convinced that this is the location of the sketch. We returned to this spot in early 2016 but were unable to get a more convincing photo. It is difficult to envision these cliff faces without their tree cover.

(Not obvious from the photo is that there is a small bay behind the near cliff on the far shore as in the sketch. Also, in Thomson's time there may have been a dam at Carcajou Falls and thus the water level depicted in the sketch could differ from the modern level. This photo was taken from our canoe; the sketching location is more likely up on the shore.)
