Members Bruce Hinds and John Cuny at Lake Isabel north of Seattle...Beautiful!
Bruce says, "This lake is one way in, one way out but there is a gap at the far end you can pass through if things don't look right. Water is crystal clear and no noise, bugs or people."
Sounds really fun.
John says, "Nice day at an Alpine Lake, 3200' MSL. Nice to have the big engine on the Seabee. Peaks in the area 5000+."
All photos by John Cuny except for the lower right corner by Mike Arntzen (Sportsman pilot).
