Lake Arenal, Now and Then

Many of us have seen Lake Arenal, its a must when you go to Costa Rica, not so much because the lake but because of the volcano right next to it. but do you know how it looked before it was made into a lake?

Credit for the pictures goes to Dave Fauss, who was kind enough to share some of the pictures he took while in Costa Rica back in 1971.
