The Cascade Lakes Highway is a treasure trove of lakes to explore. From the size of Elk Lake to the tiny Devil's, there is variety and beauty to be found right off of the road.
"Little Lava Lake is located on the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountain Range at an elevation of 4,750 feet. The small lake is surrounded by mature pine forests with bull rushes and lava outcroppings lining its shores." - http://www.recreation.gov/camping/little-lava-lake/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=72118
