Good point, Peterman, however this one was not created by a dam. But still, it's got a dam.

Chester Morse? Now that would be ballsy. I've only seen Chester Morse once and that was from the top of Mt. Washington about 20 years ago! There's no way in there, right? 'Cept to sneak in there on foot. Or do you know a way?

As for Bumping, it's a natural lake that was enlarged by the construction of a dam finished in 1910. Just like the lake in my pic. But the dam on my lake was built during the Depression.

Rimrock? Whenever I'm riding Rt. 12 over White Pass I like to turn off on FS1200 which goes along the south side of Rimrock. Very pretty. In fact, here's a pic taken from FS1200 last summer with my dog Kirby.




But that's not the lake in the pic I posted.

It's funny how many of these Cascade lakes look like each other.

There's a glacial boulder on the north side of Rattlesnake Lake that, 15 years ago, was about 20 yards from shore. Me and the kids used to swim out there and horse around to cool off after climbing down from Rattlesnake Ledge. Rattlesnake Mountain was the 1st "summit" my daughter conquered. I think she was 5? She's 23 now. Good memories.

The water is lower now--



Anyway, Rattlesnake is a swing and a miss.

Keechelus Lake is a close guess. But J.W.Mudd's guess was closer.

If that hint doesn't clinch it for you guys . . . .

Mudd! Finally! Cle Elum Lake! When you guessed Lake Kachess and I said "Nice try!" I really meant it, since those two lakes are like twins.

From the town of Cle Elum the Salmon Le Sac Road passes through the historic mining towns of Roslyn and Ronald, two towns you should see if you haven't already, then goes deep into the Alpine Lakes Wilderness and provides access to lots of hiking trails in the summer, and snowmobile/snowshoe/XC skiing destinations in winter. If you like exploring the Cascades, ya gotta check this road off your list. Some campgrounds up in there too if you go into that sorta thing.

Part of the Salmon la Sac Road runs alongside of the eastern shore of Cle Elum Lake, and there are a few primitive camping spots along the shoreline, including the one where I snapped this shot. But for the most part, the lake is hard to see. It's a natural lake, and the dam (constructed in 1933) only raised the level of the water a little--to the height it normally reaches during the spring melt.

Three years ago the Yakima Nation reintroduced sockeye salmon to the lake.

OK, Mudd, your next.
