Which lake was your boat in?

I havent been on a boat in forever. I have an open invitation to go salmon fishing with my FIL on the Columbia but I never actually block off calendar and go.

Have you seen the pond that disappears after the ice under it melts? Id like to paddle around that. Paddle through the trees like mangroves on the bayou but in the PNW.

Great views, thanks for sharing.

I have some family up that way near Cougar, WA. We went swimming at (some) river that drains off Rainer which you can see in the distance from where we were. Basically, straight ice water.
My cousins jumped right in from off a rock ledge, so I followed them in. I hit the water and was out so fast I don't even think I got wet.

How the PNW does lakes.

If Swafford Pond was in SoCal theyd call it a lake.

Its always interesting to me which are lakes and which are reservoirs.

For me, it's whether people decide something is a river or a creek. Denny Creek is bigger than the LA River.

LA river. Turlock irrigation district would call it a canal.

Agree, this time last year we were in Seattle over the 4th. We missed the record heat wave by a few weeks and the weather was perfect. My daughters & I hiked one day in the Stevens Pass area somewhere off US-2. These pics can't compare with yours, but it was beautiful there.

Did you go by a giant waterfall to get to that lake?

No, we wanted to try and see Snoqualmie Falls after the hike but traffic was terrible coming back, a snails pace most of the way. We took a long winding narrow gravel road to get to the trail head off Hwy 2 and just didn't have time.

I don't hike from Route 2 very often because of traffic. I was thinking that was Lake Serene but you hike by a large waterfall to get to that lake so it must be a different one. Looks like Mount Index in the background?

More photos please! Keeps me from getting heat depression it’s a lovely 102 with humidity. I cruised US 2 thru Montana then again a few years later in Northern New England on the way to Acadia NP. We were going to clip Acadia a lady at the hotel desk said DONT! You have driven this far don’t miss it you will regret it. Acadia was awesome. US 2 was slow but that was great because we name several stops to check stuff out along the way. And Walmart is exactly the same in Maine as it is here.

Shoulda taken some pictures on my ride this morning, "Lake" Hodges is the lowest level I've seen it. When I was a kid there was water on the east side of I-15, that's all forest with 50-foot trees now, has been for a bunch of years.

In this link you can see a rectangle of buoys, this morning only the outermost line of them were floating, almost the entire side lines were on dirt.
