A very old bridge spans the entrance to the Clayoquot Arm of Kennedy Lake, and although it may be old it is a perfect spot to stop and admire the scenery at sunset. This picture shows the colours of the sky, the changing leaves of the trees on the mountain and the stillness of Kennedy Lake. This old wooden bridge has seen a lot of action from logging trucks to tourists vehicles such as campers.
Kennedy Lake can be a great destination for canoeing or kayaking, but if you are more inclined to walk around the lake, this old wooden bridge is the only path available to cross to the other side at this location. There are many things to see in this beautiful scenic area of tree clad mountain sides, including native species of flora and fauna, and old-growth forests. As can be seen in this view also, there are stretches of deserted lake shore which would be the perfect place to watch the sunset or have a picnic.
This is a transition area of the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, meaning it can be used to create sustainable development practices and it also protects old-growth Sitka spruce. Kennedy Lake is also the largest body of fresh water on Vancouver Island so officials want to protect it from pollution and development. This area is good for hiking and sightseeing as well, and this old wooden bridge is just one of the features of the area that add to the mountain and lake scenery.
