( Prints for sale online – Twin Peaks Blue ) History – The lake was called Dawson after John Dawson (1839-1917) before taking the name McIntosh. Dawson joined the Chicago-Colorado Colony in 1871, and farmed east of Hygiene. In 2003, the City leased the surface rights to the lake with the intention of creating a district park which will link Dawson Park, Flanders Park and Boulder County’s Lohr Open Space.
