Brule Lake apples.

9/9/15 – A canoeist from came in from a trip to Brule Lake and dropped off theses apples that he picked from a tree on a campsite in Cone Bay. He brought in four apples, but we ate one and it was delicious.
Brule Lake was pretty developed at one time, with several resorts and a number of cabins. There was also a lot of early logging activity on Brule Lake, especially in the 1950s and early ’60s.
Apparently someone planted an apple tree back then and it still survives. Over the years I’ve come across several apple trees that are seemingly planted in the middle of nowhere out in the woods. When I see one, I always look around and invariably find the remains of a cabin nearby.
These feral apple trees usually look terrible because the bears break them down to get at the apples. They end up looking like a low lying, gnarled bush. – Bill
