This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut Map of Lake of Bays in Ontario, Canada with the following interesting stats carved into it:
- Surface Area: 70.53 km2
- Average Depth: 22.25 m
- Maximum Depth: 70.10 m
Interesting factoid: The First Nations apparently called the lake Num g e low e nee g go mark lak a hagan which means Lake of Forks. It was also known as Baptiste Lake, Forked Lake and Lake of Two Bays. In 1837, David Thompson traversed the lake and drew a map of the lake that refers to it as Forked Lake. On September 5, 1837, Thompson mentioned catching lake trout in the lake. Thomas Moffatt, an agent for the Hudson’s Bay Company (Moffatt reported an outpost on Bigwin Island) referred to it as Trading Lake. In 1853, a geological survey by Alexander Murray of the Geological Survey of Canada referred to the lake as Lake of Bays. (Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
