Lake George

May 10, 2011

Near Canberra, Australia,  I passed Lake George, which turned out not to be a lake any more. But it was a special and magnificent landscape….

    Did a double-take as the Lake George in New York state I have visited is still very much a lake of the water kind. The “lake” stretches for kilometers!

    Lake George is one of the spookiest lakes in Australia – there are always weird tales being told about it. You’re lucky to see it green. Sometimes it’s just a big patch of dirt. Guess all that flooding was good for something – perhaps some of it trickled down to NSW.

    A wonderful ‘green’ lake. I imagine at some time it was actually a water lake.

      It was a beautiful place – if there was water still, it was not much – and far away!

    It’s a mysteriously disappearing lake. Sometimes there is water, sometimes there is not.

    Well, it is beautiful lake, if one can call it yet by the word lake. Here where I am living one lake was dried to an arable land. Nowadays few people know this history.

    I just wonder what the history of Lake George is.

    I checked Wikipedia:
    – where it seems like there is still water in the lake? Mysterious – as it had been raining more than normally in this part of Australia this year?

    Hi Truels – I (Rachael) used to live in Canberra & travelled to Sydney many times – passing Lake George on the way. I have seen water in it, but it must be said that it is more likely to be empty … This was just one of the weird sights along the way, the other key one being the Big Marino which had a giftshop in its nether regions.

      I saw The Big Merino too, a pretty special experience….
      Thank you, Rachel, for all your comments to this post and for all your info on Lake George. Do you live still in Australia?

    Nature is special and in Australia you can see some of these things!
    Have a nice day!

    Den gule anemone som du henviser til er den samme som jeg har lagt ut… (har samme latinske navn) Det finnes en som danskene kaller for svovelgul som er en krysning mellom hvit og gul… I Norge kalles den for “Halvveis”…
    Hageblomstene av de ville anemoner har en noe annen fasong på blomsten…flere kronblad f. eks.
    Ønsker deg en fortsatt god dag!

      Hans, thanks for your comments here about Australia – and Scandinavian flowers 😉

    Interesting lake Truels. I was also thinking about Lake George in New York state.

    I kept looking for the water, I guess it’s taken over by the vegetation and all.

      Yes, Rachel have helped a lot in her comments here explaining the phenomenon…

    Hello Truels – no, I’m in London and kind of in Paris. A long way from NSW, but a lot closer to Denmark!
