Blue Gentian Lake (Late Spring)

In late December 2012, a combination of snow, rain, wind, and temperatures fluctuating above and below freezing resulted in massive tree fall on the North Shore Mountains and as far away as the lower slopes of Mt. Baker. Large trees situated on land above 600m and below 900m were particularly hard-hit. Around Blue Gentian Lake, trees fell on open areas that had been regenerating for years.
