Oregon Adventures: The wonder of Crater Lake

No matter where you’re coming from, it is a long drive to get up the mountain to Crater Lake.

And it is a long drive to get down the mountain from Crater Lake, no matter where you’re headed.

Yet hundreds of thousands of people make the trek every year — even as snow still closes areas of the park in June and small earthquakes are a reminder that the lake itself was created by a collapsing volcano.

And few, if any, of them will have the words to do justice to what they see when the lake first comes into view.

    Wow, this looks just incredible. I’m pleased for you that you got to see it in real life, and pleased for me that I got to see your amazing photos! I also liked how, after saying that anyone would struggle to describe the view in words, you let the photos speak for themselves ❤
