This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Upper and Lower Blue Lakes in Lake County, California with the following interesting stats carved into it:
- Upper Blue Lake
- Approximately 1.2 Miles Long
- Depth: 180 Feet
- Lower Blue Lake
- Approximately 0.6 Miles Long
- Depth: 25 Feet
- The two small lakes are not connected and sit in the bottom of the steep and densely wooded Cold Creek Canyon.
Interesting factoid: At one time, before the Blue Lakes were formed, Clear Lake drained north through this valley to the Russian River. A few thousand years ago, a giant landslide from the west blocked off the valley, raising Clear Lake and forcing it to drain out of the Lower Arm into Cache Creek on the southern end, thus forming the Blue Lakes. Highway 20 climbs to the crest of the old landslide, and you can see the great scar on the hillside to the south-west that produced it. (Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
This map can be personalized (at no additional charge) with up to two lines of engraving. Leave notes during checkout and we will email a graphic proof to you for approval prior to production. Example:
