Sparks Lake lies at the angle between Mt. Bachelor and the Three Sisters at the Northern end of the Cascade Lakes Highway in Central Oregon. It is one of the most beautiful of the many beautiful mountain lakes in the chain, and reported to be the favorite photographic location for legendary Oregon Photographer Ray Atkeson. The hiking trail on the peninsula jutting into the lake (not shown here) is named in his memory. Though thousands of images have been made of this lake due to its accessibility and popularity as a picnic and canoeing or paddleboarding destination, I still cannot resist adding one more, and I’m certain I will continue to feel that way on future trips to this site.
