Sunken Canoe

OPB | Sept. 27, 2007 1:30 p.m.

Underwater divers get a glimpse of the fragile remains of an ancient canoe resting at the bottom of a Cascade lake. Sediment has hidden the canoe, perhaps for centuries. It’s made from a Ponderosa pine and was probably used by native people to harvest water lily roots.
