Persons, Water, Rivers, Woody Plants, Trees These tree trunks are immediately outside the Cy Wedge cottage at Otter Lake. The men point out the part of the trunk where small boats used to be tied. Since the silting of the Sturgeon River became heavy this depressed area filled with fine grained material so that the old lake bed is covered in the area. Now these trees are a half-mile from the Otter Lake shoreline. From left, Roy Bekkala, Wesley Myllyla, Toivo Lahti and Fred Biekkola. [The four men point to the area of the tree where the boats were tied.]
