I visited Spirit Lake for the first time last autumn. It’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve been in the Northwest, nestled below hills and mountains about an hour east from Spokane. This year, we decided to visit in August so we could go swimming and experience a little bit of summer there. It was beautiful (though I really don’t think anything can beat the Northwest in the fall), and brought along my brand new Sony A7S to capture it. Photos and video from that weekend are below.
