It was a perfectly clear day when we went to Crater Lake. To see it is unbelievable and hard to image that it is real. It is a 35 mile driving loop with many overlooks and pull overs. At each of the stops there are...More
This may be one of the most beautiful parks in the national park system. Simply it's a beautiful, blue lake in a volcano. Of note though, the road the encircles the lake is a 2 lane, narrow road, with no guard rail. A bit of...More
We parked at the Visitors Centre and walked up to the lake from there. It's stunning. Photographs just don't capture it's beauty. There's an information point down some stairs in front of the lake which provides interesting facts about the lake.
