This photo pair features the Wonder Lake outlet and Lake Creek that is visible meandering through its associated wetland to the south of the road. Changes visible in this photo pair include an increase in apparent spruce density in areas surrounding the wetland, the addition of a possible beaver pond or change to the water levels and wetland vegetation itself, and the invasion of the wetland by spruce.
