Kachess Lake, WA 7/10 in 4K UHD

May 30, 2021
Sammamish, WA
Catching up on some video editing :cool: For the west coast mountain lake paddlers out there, here is my absolute favorite from 2021! About an hour east of Seattle on I90, just past Snoqualmie Pass. Great for beginners to advanced paddlers. Best early morning (lighter winds). Check lake levels before you go at resource below ... best early spring to mid-summer as lake levels can get significantly lower late summer. Options for primitive camping for kayak campers.
