“It’s a Boy Thing”, My Brother Said

Looked dangerous to me. They were far away.  Shot with a 24-70 mm L series lens. Cropped to see the guys jump off the rocks into the alkaline lake.  There are three views of the same frame, figures jumping get smaller and smaller.  A mini-slideshow.

On the Colville Tribal Reservation, “Omak Lake, the largest saline lake in Washington, is located southeast of Omak. It lies mostly within a steep-walled valley and is the principal body of water in the Omak Lake watershed. Omak Lake has no outlet and is fed by drainage from the surrounding hills and plateaus and from several inlet streams.”

  1. Really makes me want to go swimming.I haven’t jumped off of rocks since I was a teenager!

  2. Interesting lake – such “soda” lakes are not common in the U.S., although I think there are some in Death Valley. I have seen them in the Great Rift Valley in Africa – no way for the water to get out of the sunken rift. This one doesn’t seem to be (very) toxic, as some are.
    Having raised boys, I know they love to dare themselves and each other. It is a wonder more of them don’t survive the contests.
