Detroit Lake, a Lovely Blend of Blue and Green

After leaving Newberry National Volcanic Monument I headed northwest along Route 22 and happily came upon a lovely lake. Situated 45 miles southeast of Salem, Detroit Lake boasts aquamarine waters and abundant plant life below the surface. It’s so nice to be able to swim in these clear lakes without having to lift my head for sighting the shore! Oh, and did I mention the water was warm?
