For Ed Bartlien, Lost Lake has a special place in his heart. Like many who have lived around here long enough, the 92-year-old has decades’ worth of fine memories locked away, of fishing, camping, picnicking and enjoying the picturesque mountain lake that has long been a jewel of Hood River County.
