Lake Kachess, Seattle

Madhu and I drove from Portland to Seattle last weekend, and spent a relaxing weekend in Seattle at Meher’s home and enjoyed Meher’s and Satya’s hospitality.  On Sunday, we took a relaxing and beautiful ride to Lake Kachess.

Kachess Lake is a lake and reservoir along the course of the Kachess River in Washington state, US.  Kachess Lake is part of the Columbia River basin, the Kachess River being a tributary of the Yakima River, which is tributary to the Columbia River. The name Kachess comes from a Native American term meaning “more fish”, in contrast to Keechelus Lake, whose name means “few fish”.

The lake is used as a storage reservoir for the Yakima Project, an irrigation project run by the United States Bureau of Reclamation. Although a natural lake, Kachess Lake’s capacity and discharge is controlled by Kachess Dam
