Fall colors and an aerial viewpoint give a different perspective to Dutch Lake, the jewel in the heart of Clearwater.

According to a geologist, the lake appears to be a kettle lake, meaning it was formed from chunks of ice left behind by a receding glacier thousands of years ago.

The ice chunks were partially or wholly buried by glacial outwash debris. When the ice chunks melted away, holes were left to be filled with water.     Photo by Fritz Schaer, Wells Gray Air
