The Lake elevation is about 135 feet above sea level. As you look at the pictures of the lake remember this. The lake is pretty close to sea level. Some of the higher mountains you will see are pushing 4000 feet and some of the peaks in the background are close to 5000 feet. This contrast is spectacular. At the lake level you can see a temperate rain forest and as you look up at the peaks you see it change until you’re looking at formations well above timberline .
