Kayaking the turquoise waters of Lake Crescent


Kayakers paddle in the deep, turquoise waters of Lake Crescent, in Olympic National Park, Clallam County, Friday July 5, 2013. At over 600 feet deep, it is officially the second-deepest lake in Washington, the first being Lake Chelan. Algae cannot grow in these nitrogen-deprived waters, which keeps it crystal clear, and a popular place for hikers, swimmers and water recreation.
