Day 39 - Crater Lake, OR

Today promised to be warm and sunny. We headed out in the shiny Prius (thank you Dave!) for Crater Lake National Park. It was 92 miles according to Google. 

We entered the park through the north entrance and stopped at several overlooks with views of Wizard Island and the fabulous dark blue color. Crater Lake is one of those places where photos can’t really show what it’s really like.

We even found a dog-friendly trail behind one of the visitor centers. Lots of dogs on other trails even though they were signed with “No dogs”. Likewise, people were feeding the chipmunks and squirrels while standing right next to the “No feeding the animals” signs.

Love visiting Crater Lake. I've done it by bicycle and motorcycle, and once by car. Motorcycle would probably be the best of all worlds lol. Love that blue color. Chipmunks - so cute. Who can resist them really? :)

You really lucked out with the weather at Crater Lake. What an awesome pano view, Richard.

This is only my second visit. The last was with the Ural. We had planned a trip several years ago but replacing trailer tires took priority.

It really was a fabulous day. There was a slight breeze so the surface wasn’t completely mirror-like but it was close.
