Lake Chelan

Lake Chelan is a narrow lake over 50 miles long, and the third deepest lake in the U.S. After Lake Tahoe and Crater Lake.  The name Chelan is a Salish Indian name for deep water.  The lake is nestled in the Cascade Mountains, with an underwater gorge extending up to 1486 ft. below the surface. This twilight view is from Stehekin at the far eastern end of the lake.

Lovely moody photo of this lake and its mountains surrounding it. The mood to me is serenity. I am sure it has different meanings for different folks. -- barbara
