The 2nd and 3rd lakes of the Obstruction Point trail to Grand Lake, SE of Port Angeles and Hurricane Ridge, have been getting colder for several years. The 2nd lake was amber when visited in '08. It is now 'akariotic' blue. The Q lake, dubbed for its drainage 'tail,' was half covered in ice in Aug '08. Last year it was 7/8 covered. This year it backed down to 3/4.
1st ice reduction in 5 years
