Hello underwater forest explorers! Everyone's Travel Club set out to see if the legend was true: a sunken forest in nearby Lake Sammamish. Washington Legend has it that a thousand year old earthquake caused a landslide, sinking the forest. Apparently there are sunken forests like this one in Lake Washington too. Let's do it!
We put together our inflatable Innova Helios 2 on the beach at Lake Sammamish State Park.
Within' about a 1/2 hour paddling North, we could already see signs of the underwater trees.
...and baby trees growing on top of underwater ones...
Time to head back (that's the state park ahead).
The legend is true! The sunken forest does exist! A great trip for everyone, we were probably only gone a couple of hours, totally worth it!
