Earthquake Lake Montana

I’m taking a vacation in Montana, fly fishing on the Madison River, and in route to the lodge stopped by Earthquake Lake. Quake Lake is a lake in southwestern Montana. It was created after an earthquake struck on August 17, 1959, killing 28 people. Today, Quake Lake is 190 feet deep and 6 miles long. The story is saddening and amazing…visiting the lake and seeing the cabins that were lifted and moved by the fast waters, the slide and still standing dead trees was chilling and awing. Below are some pictures I took and here is a link to learn more:
