Central WA is a beautiful place. It's where families are on camping trips and avid outdoors enthusiasts intersect. Blue Lake is a great place to stretch your legs from a long drive on Hwy 20. It is an easy 4.4 mile roundtrip hike in the shade -- with two short open meadows. The most rewarding end stop is take a dip in the icy cold water to cool off or take a fun family photo that will make your family and friends jealous.
