There are lakes scattered throughout the Doug. Nestled in the forest and capturing the essence of the High Cascades, these lakes enhance the beauty of the Douglas-Fir National Monument.

Sometimes it is hard to think of one of the Doug's lakes as anything more than a place to capture reflections. mt jefferson russell lake winter small graphic

Some of the Doug's lakes are seasonal, and some are gradually disappearing, as the forest encroaches on them. parkcreek3 graphic

The Doug also has a group of not quite lakes, the wet meadows of the Doug. These areas also have their own beauty, and provide a great contrast with the surrounding forest. gordon meadows med graphic
