Mountain Lakes

Record #:
Long ago the hurrying rivers of western North Carolina carved their channels deep through the hills, removing all barriers that might form lakes. Therefore there are not natural lakes in that section of the State. But man remedied this lack by building dams and impounding the water of streams and rivers into artificial lakes, until now the lovely mountain country of North Carolina may well be considered a land of lakes, there being in fourteen counties fully seventy-seven lakes.
