Mystery Lake

My friend Scoot and I went for a little hike and a swim on Sunday morning. I like to keep my spots secret but this one really is called Mystery Lake. You can’t really swim in a lake in late-September out here too often, but summer has stuck around a bit.

Jeff Hamada is the Founder and Editor of Booooooom. He lives and works in Vancouver.

  • Damn Jeff, why you always have to show off that Vancouver beauty. It makes me resent my current surroundings!
