Most People Don’t Know About The Strange Disappearing Lake Hiding In Washington

Washington is full of mystery and wonder, which is one of the many things we love about it. We’ve mentioned the Evergreen State’s underwater ghost towns, but did you know we also have a lake that ghosts us every year, only to return the following spring? It’s true, and our disappearing lake is unlike anything you’ll find in the Pacific Northwest.

Washingtonians have been sticking close to home this spring, so there’s no telling how far the disappearing lake is in its current cycle. Also, it can be tough to find without having exact driving directions. Luckily, Zach Urness made a fantastic video and put it on YouTube for us all to experience. Enjoy a virtual lake tour here:
