Alder Lake, Washington Kayaking in 4K UHD with Drone Aerials

A self-supported trip created by PresenceVideography

Trip Overview

Highlights from kayaking at Alder Lake in Washington State near Mt Rainier, with video in 4K UHD including stunning drone aerials. Spectacular scenery with snowy Mt Rainier looming right over Alder Lake, and the picturesque little town of Reliance Washington in the foreground. Highly recommended in the Spring when the snow is still visible on the mountains. The lake level was 20 feet below normal when I kayaked there. Check the levels when you plan to go. I would not recommend paddling if levels are much lower than this.

Safety Notes

Check winds and lake levels.
