Sue Frause, a freelance writer and photographer, captured this excellent shot of Green Lake from the air on June 16, 2011:
Sue says that she was traveling from Victoria, BC to Seattle on a Kenmore Air flight when she got the shot, which she later shared in the MyGreenLake Flickr Pool.
Very cool! There’s the Hearthstone!! :)
Here’s a view of the east side of the lake, taken from a different aerial perch in 1947:
Evans Pool (1955) doesn’t appear in the older photo, of course, and neither does the Hearthstone (1964).
Look how small those trees lining what is now the shade plaza were….
Great photo! Thanks for sharing.
