| Description of Tamarack Lake:
Tamarack lake can be reached by either of two ways: hike along the north edge of Echo Lakes on the Pacific Crest Tail for over three miles and then up into Tamarack, or take a water taxi across both lakes, and shave 2 hours of hiking time. We chose to be tightwads and hike the entirety, but were rewarded with grand views of the lakes during the final stages of a long, long winter. Tamarack is an OK lake aesthetically speaking, but I witnessed no fish in the lake and didn't even get a hit. I had more fun cruising in my Trail Boat and watching Steve take a plunge in the icy water than anything else. My wife enjoyed a nap.
