11/15/2012: Another stop in our whirlwind tour of the Atherton Tablelands. This lake was a worthwhile visit with a cool trail through rainforest that circumnavigated the lake. One of the highlights of the lake was a couple of huge kauri pine trees, and there are even some red cedar still growing here (as most of the rest of the tablelands have been leveled for farming).
