Geocache Description:


The Acadian Carving - Portage Lake

The Town of Portage Lake was first settled by Acadian lumbermen in 1844.  The population at the 2020 census was 359.

Portage Lake has a surface area of 2,471 acres; maximum depth is 25 feet with the average depth being 10 feet. It is part of the Fish River chain of lakes.  This is a series of eight lakes which include Fish Lake, Portage Lake, St. Froid Lake, Square Lake, Cross Lake, Mud Lake and Long Lake.  

The cache is at a carving that was made by master carver Tom Cote of Limestone.  He made eight carvings that were gifted to Acadian towns in the St. John Valley for the Acadian World Congress in 2014.  This carving depicts Portage Lake's lumbering heritage.

Please replace as found. Please daytime only caches to not draw attention to this cache, so it does not go missing.
