Some of the most serene places I have ever visited. So peaceful and awe inspiring.
Waldo Lake located in the Cascade Mountains, Central Oregon, is a gem of a natural alpine lake and one of the three most purest lakes world-wide. It is so pristine, it is almost transparent. Paulina Lake, located in the Deschutes National Forest, is equally mesmerizing - my favorite lake of all times.
