Lake Merwin Boat Ramp

The Lewis River flows from Mt. Adams down to the Columbia River, and technically I think Lake Merwin is just the name for a dammed up portion of the river. Three adjacent dams form Lakes Merwin, Yale, and Swift, and the road to Gifford Pinchot National Forest passes all three. This particular section of Lake Merwin offered the most ethereal reflection in the late afternoon mist.

Wow, that is just a superb image.
