Red Lake

The Red Lake is also known as “The Killer Lake”, partly because of the reddish, blood-like color lent by the sediments carried by the river supplying it with water, and partly due to the legend saying that, at the time the mountain collapsed and formed the dam, a shepherd, and his sheep were caught underneath. The forest caught at the bottom of the lake remained standing and became petrified over time so that today the black spruce trunks jutting out of the water look like tombstones.
