Bill made a map of the enchantments. Very detailed with the names he and Peg had bestowed on the various lakes of the area.

If anyone owns or knows of a copy please pm.

I like how these maps show what I consider the "correct" names for some of the lakes.

Wonderful names that Stark bestowed on an area he certainly viewed as magical. https://www.wta.org/news/signpost/445

Follow the link "Hiking Legends" for some good information about the Starks and other influential old timer NW hikers and climbers.

And another article in Bill Stark's memory. https://www.seattlepi.com/local/politics/article/The-life-of-Peg-Stark-35-years-exploring-naming-7960480.php

We prefer and use the Stark names based on Norse mythology

FWIW an old map I threw together using Joey's site, just a few Stark names superimposed on a current topo (not all Stark names are represented)

Edit: looks like the version on Flickr is tiny, I can upload the full 6492x4344 .png file if anyone wants/needs it

FYI, the original size is available (click the thumbnail below, then the downward pointing arrow to the top right of the lightbox to see all available sizes).  We only display web friendly sizes (up to 1600 pixels) in the lightbox.  Also, png is probably not the best format to save these type of images.  I noticed the original size is a whopping 64 KB (even if you saved as the highest quality jpg it would only be a fraction of that size).

I met the Stark's when they lived in Leavenworth, received their map of the Enchantments, their Enchantments video, but most of all about an hour of great conversation with them.

Speaking of their video, I loaned my out and lost it.  Does anyone know if it is still available (or even if ever transferred to DVD)?

Thanks Tom, I think I went png to prevent loss of quality from repeated edits, and for the layer support when adding the labels. The .png format also seems to support printing to scale on large paper format while .jpg seems to start losing definition or pixelling out on large scale prints but that might just be me.

I like the Stark names as well. Ive been fortunate enough to have spent the night at every major Stark named lake there.  Naiad is my favorite.  Its private. There is a nice sandy beach, and there is a toilet. up.gif
