[HT/PC-SIMPLE] Hollow Lake (PNT) Natural Area

Presumably the name is descriptive as the lake lies below two steep hills. The PNT is about 50 km northeast of Edmonton and is composed of two non-adjoined sites.

Other Information

Hollow, a Small Valley Between Mountains. This seems to be an apt description of the lake noting the 30-40 M elevation difference between the surrounding hills and the lake. A hollow and valley are synonyms with slightly different meanings. A hollow is a small valley between mountains; a low spot surrounded by elevations. A valley is an elongated depression between hills or mountains, often with a river flowing through it [1]. The other parcels of land between these two non-adjoined sites is private [2].
