Paddling into Blue. A quiet paddle across Waldo Lake on a blue sky, late summer day is amongst my favorite places to be. With an elevation of 5414 feet, this pristine lake sits in a high basin carved by glaciation, and is considered one of the top ten cleanest lakes in the world. After years of controversy, Waldo Lake has been declared motor-free by the State Marine Board, and United States Forest Service. Willamette National Forest, Central Oregon Cascades.
