Mysterious Lake Monster Causes Underwater Eruption (Video)


In June 2017, kayakers in Washington encounter a strange occurrence on Yale Lake. As they navigate the water, the kayakers witness a sudden underwater eruption that is later attributed to a possible lake monster. Yale Lake is connected to the Columbia River, which is rumored to be the home of a massive serpentine creature named Colossal Claude.

Skeptics dismiss such claims as mere folklore, but the story of Colossal Claude has persisted for years and has even been featured in various books, articles, and television shows. The sighting on Yale Lake only adds to the mystery and intrigue surrounding the existence of this elusive creature. Whether or not Colossal Claude truly exists may remain a mystery, but for those who believe in its existence, the possibility of encountering this legendary lake monster continues to captivate the imagination.
