This past weekend a group of Northwest Dive Club buddies and I headed out to the Olympic Peninsula to dive in Lake Crescent. This alpine lake is nestled in the Olympic National Park, a temperate rainforest and one of Washington State’s great natural treasures. Among the group of technical divers in attendance, we had four gentlemen who played various roles in the solving of a 72 year-old mystery, involving the disappearance of a young couple back in the late 1920s. A team of divers was able to discover the location of the submerged car that carried this young couple to their tragic deaths, so many decades ago. For more on the solving of the mystery, please read this article published by Northwest Dive Club Moderator and ADM Chief Staff Writer, John Rawlings.
Our dive took us down to 225 feet, for a bottom time of 70 minutes. I was diving a COPIS Megalodon CCR
