Best Lake

Chocolate Lake

If it wasn’t already well known for having won in this category last year, the flooded former quarry located just beyond the Armdale Rotary (I know it’s a roundabout now, I just can’t get it into my head just yet) is now immortalized in song, in Jenn Grant’s gorgeous “Dreamer,” from her Orchestra for the Moon album. It goes something like, “On a date by Chocolate Lake, down by the Rotary, Past town at the edge, Looking down at butterflies.”

First runner up: Lake Banook

Second runner up: Williams Lake
