Spend The Day On This Overlooked Oregon Lake To Get Away From It All

If you love Oregon’s natural beauty, you probably love to get out there in the wild and experience the quiet solitude you can only find far from our cities. Here’s a gorgeous lake with crystal-clear water, surrounded by thick forest. And the best part? No noisy outboard motors here!
