Lake Pend Oreille

I haven't been to Lake Pend Oreille before, but found the facts shared at silken's blog about the place to be quite fascinating.

Just how deep does this lake need to be to house a Loch Ness-type monster and to test submarines? Well, it is 350 m (1,150 feet) deep in some spots. That is amazing! The depth of the lake make it acoustically similar to the ocean, so some Navy testing is still done there.

The wildlife that lives in and around the lake is extensive. The scenery, they say, is spectacular. It sounds like the perfect spot for a vacation, if you ask me.
