Rattlesnake Lake

Hannah Hale, right, holds Emma Mirka, 1, as her mother Brittney Heck takes a full-body plunge Monday evening in Rattlesnake Lake. The two best friends took Mirka swimming, because it was "too hot to do anything, but come to the lake," Heck said. The friends removed Mirka's diaper after it became waterlogged.

Alyssa Bristol, 8, of Snoqualmie, climbs on a tree stump Monday evening at Rattlesnake Lake. Bristol, her parents, grandmother and dog left their home to find some relief near the water.

Joey Beres, 21, and Devorah Gautschi(cq), 23, break while swimming in Rattlesnake Lake, near North Bend. Numerous stumps and logs can be found above, and below the surface of the lake.
