Mississippi Lake affords a varied lifestyle, close to nature, with water sports at our front door.  Our residents and visitors continue to send us their  favourite lake photos.  We invite you to browse our gallery and share our love of the lake.

Thank you to all our contributors!

Please send your photo as an attachment to an email to MLA.  Be sure to include the date the photo was taken, what part of the lake it was taken, the name of the photographer, and any additional info you might wish to add.

Lake Mississippi is home to numerous species of birds.   Migrating birds, year-round birds, swans, geese, ducks, loons, etc.

We have our share of bears, moose, racoon, fox, otter, etc.   Some are cute, some are cute but scary, some are a nuisance, but hey... we are all trying to share a piece of paradise that is our lake.

Ed Carew's photo of a River Otter eating a frog in front of his place on Ebb's Bay.

Over the next 15 minutes or so, the otter dove down, then re-appeared with various snacks.

For many people, these aren't so cute.  But, they are a vibrant part of our ecosystem.

Patricia took this photo of turtles hatching at her home off Knowlton Place by the lake.

Patricia took this photo of newborn turtles.  They helped get 44 of them to the lake. 

The lake provides spectacular vistas any time of the day, but the wonderful gold and crimson hues at daybreak or at the end of another great day really are something to behold.
