Cameron Lake: Peace On the Border
Cartographers speak of degrees and seconds, Meridians and
Mercators,longitudes and latitudes.
They know the significance of the 49th Parallel: the International
Boundary that divides--or does it join?--the Dominion of Canada
and the United States of America.
Cameron Lake gives you a chance to paddle across one of those
dotted lines that mapmakers adore.
Begin your paddle near the boat dock at the north end of the
lake. As you approach the south end of this magnificent
sub-alpine lake, look closely for the dots and dashes that divide
Canada and the USA.
Don't see them?
Neither do I.
I hope there's a lesson there.
