Lost Lake

Lost Lake - a crowd-free recreation destination.

While taking photos for a forthcoming Adventures NW article about the eastern Okanogan Highlands, I snapped this shot of my friend Zack relaxing on Lost Lake, part of the Five Lakes Recreation Area east of Tonasket. This shot typifies recreation in the eastern Okanogan: clear skies, non-existent crowds, and miles of rounded, fir-crowned peaks. Over thirty miles fro Tonasket and not on the way to anything, the Five Lakes area makes for a great battery-recharging weekend.
