Tully Lake

Description:

Tully Lake is a 1300-acre flood control project completed in 1949. The reservoir area is rich with natural beauty and outdoor recreation. A tents-only campground with 35 sites lies on the north side of the 200-acre lake. Adjacent to the dam, the Recreation Area offers picnic sites and a boat ramp with a 10-HP maximum. Twenty-three miles of hiking trails extend around the lake, Long Pond, and off-site to nearby waterfalls and scenic vistas. The lake is ideal for canoes and kayaks, which can explore the lake, the Tully River and Long Pond.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
