Diablo Lake Paddle


Six paddlers enjoyed the weekend camping and paddling in the North Cascades mountains. The group camped Friday evening at the Colonial Creek camp ground and shared a wonderful meal under the stars. On Saturday we paddle approximately six miles from Colonial Creek to the Ross Dam under bright blue, sunny skies. Most of the paddle is bordered by high cliffs on both sides of the lake. The ice cold water is a bright blue color which is derived from the high silt content of the water.

Google sez: Diablo Lake is a reservoir in the North Cascade mountains of northern Washington state, United States. Created by Diablo Dam, the lake is located between Ross Lake and Gorge Lake on the Skagit River at an elevation of 1,201 feet (366 m) above sea level. The lake is bordered by Ross Dam on one end of the lake and Diablo Dam on the other.
