How Deep is the Deepest Lake?

One of the coolest things about swimming is that you can swim in the deepest water and if you have any skill at all there is absolutely no difference than if you were swimming in water that is just over your nose.

I absolutely flipped when I saw what the deepest was. So do you have a guess before I tell you?

1000 feet - Wrong. 2000 feet - Wrong. 3000 feet - Wrong. 4000 feet - Wrong. 5000 feet - OK, you're getting warmer. Try 5369 feet deep!

Here's a link to a cool article that describes that lake and four other of the deepest lakes in the world.

What you bet that if that lake were in the USA there would be a "No Diving" sign?!
