About the Photo

Pictured: A flock of Canadian geese in a “V-formation” heading north to British Columbia for the summer on the Pacific Flyway across the crystal-clear, vibrantly-blue, deep waters of Lake Crescent, on a cool afternoon in April of 2013 in northwest Washington State, in the northwest corner of Washington State’s Olympic National Park, in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States.

Here is a Google Map showing the area of the United States where Lake Crescent is located:

If you keep “zooming in” on the Google Map you will see the western end of Lake Crescent and the approximate spot (designated by the colored marker) from where the photographer took the photograph, looking east from the south side of the Fairholme Campground.

If you look straight ahead, just a little left-of-center in the photo, you can see the peak of the 4,537-feet (1,383-meter) Mount Storm King, at a distance of 8.1 miles (13.09 kilometers) east from where the photograph was taken.
