Ties to history and days gone by are some of the best things about living in the Cowboy State, but that doesn’t mean it never changes. Wyoming forest rangers found that out first hand this past summer when they were surveying the Bridger-Teton National Forest. They were just doing a day’s work, but imagine their surprise when they stumbled upon a brand-new lake in a spot where there hadn’t been one before.

So, now there’s another lake to add to the nearly 70 we previously had.

Since there’s already a Slide Lake in Wyoming, what do you think the new one should be called?
