kevinb wanted to see some of my alpine lake pics, so I thought I would start a thread for whoever wanted to share their pics as well. Here are mine. Some from Fragrance Lake, Lost Lake, Whatcom County. North Lake, Granite Falls. Goat Lake. Tomyhoi. and some I really don't know.

Maybe I'm mistaken Rabbits, but I just browsed through the WL.Com photo contest and I didn't see any pictures submitted by you...

With the quality of some of the pictures I see here, I'd encourage you to post some of your pictures there....

Great idea for the thread...I wish I had some pictures but unfortunately the last few trips I took were probably 5+ years ago and I have no pictures to show....

Ya I want to submit some and haven't yet. I like the one with the log best. I am going on two more hikes before the end of the month so I will see if any of those photos yield any winners.

Thanks for the compliment.

Tomyhoi...interesting. I've fished that lake. I also hunted mountain goats by it. There's three ways to get to the lake. One...hard, another easy but requires bushwhacking and the third, via BC logging roads if they still exist.

I have one good lake up by you that's not in discussions anymore as the WDFW removed it from the special regs.

Great pics Rabbit, I went up to Fragrance after you made your report with my wife and dog. Here is a couple of pics of Lake 22 and one of watson lakes in Whatcom county. Sorry about the size and quality, still trying to figure out this interweb stuff.

No, I didn't even realize that there was any kind of photo contest. I have not been on the site much lately because I have been very busy, but I may be on more now that I am finding more free time. When was the photo contest and what were the rules/stipulations? Will there be another?

What do you mean by title them? And how do you do this I tried to go to "edit post" and all I got was the text, so I am unsure of how to label each seperate picture?:scratch:

Here you go mallard83:

http://www.washingtonlakes.com/Forum/vi ... php?t=2628

Post your photos here for the contest...

and save them when you name them before you upload them...so if it was Pine Lake that you took the photo of...name the photo "PineLake.jpeg" or something like that...that's just an example...

always a great sight.....except when you want to fish the stream 50 yds. away. this time of the year, bears are not uncommon in the foothills of the north cascades. makes you feel like you have a little "COMPANY" up there by yourself...

Kevinb, it looks to me like all photo's (except #6) are from Fragrance lake. :-s
Are not all of your pictures showing up, or am I missing something?

I've fished fragrance lake a handful of times, and it seems like there is never a dull day. A great place to go if quantity is more important than quality. It's not uncommon to catch and release 20 fish in an hour or so up there....but my largest to date was only 11"...the majority being 8-10. It's full of CT's now, but I have pulled a rainbow or two out of there in the past.

I'm not sure Fragrance or Lost lake would qualify as a "high" lake, though.
Ya sure gain a lot of elevation on the hikes up to them, so they feel pretty high, but they're both around 1,100-1,200 feet.
