A swimming hole at Allouette Lake

This evening my mother and I took advantage of the new Golden Ears bridge to visit Allouette lake. While the day use area at the south end of the lake is not terribly interesting, we found a wonderful spot near the north beach campground:

This protected inlet is a wonderful little swimming hole, with clear deep water and some short cliffs of which you can jump (I couldn’t resist). The water is luminescent green colour, due either to glacier run off, or perhaps reflected light from the trees.
