Upper Melakwa Lake is a tiny lake located in King County in Washington. It is the source of the Pratt River.

The lake is located a short distance upstream from Melakwa Lake. The lake is easily reached by walking upstream from Melakwa Lake however; a lot of people are too tired to continue after the somewhat difficult trip to Melakwa Lake. By continuing north from the lake, you will eventually reach Melakwa Pass.

Spree River in Germany and the Czech Republic

The Spree is, with a length of approximately 400 kilometres (250 mi), the main tributary of the River Havel, and at their confluence in Berlin-Spandau, is much longer than the Havel, which itself flows into the Elbe at Havelberg. The river rises in the Lusatian Highlands, that are part of the Sudetes, in the Lusatian part of Saxony, where it has three sources: the historical one called Spreeborn in the village of Spreedorf, the water-richest one in Neugersdorf, and the highest elevated one in Eibau. The Spree then flows northwards through Upper and Lower Lusatia, where it crosses the border between Saxony and Brandenburg. After passing through Cottbus, it forms the Spree Forest, a large inland delta and biosphere reserve. It then flows through Lake Schwielochsee before entering Berlin, as Müggelspree(listen ). The Spree is the main river of Berlin, Brandenburg, Lusatia, and the settlement area of the Sorbs, who call the River Sprjewja. For a very short distance close to its sources, the Spree constitutes, as Spréva, the border between Germany (Saxony), and the Czech Republic (Bohemia). The Spree's longest tributaries are Dahme and Schwarzer Schöps, other well-known tributaries are Panke and Wuhle.
