Driving Journey: Day 2: Diamond Lake & Highway

By the time I got past the Cascade Lakes Highway it was after 3pm and I decided to leave Crater Lake for the following day. So instead I briefly visited Diamond Lake, which is immediately north of it.

Then I took the West Diamond Lake Highway around the western side of Crater Lake. I came across this small river which the photos simply don't do justice to. Just imagine a perfect day with warm, though not hot, weather, blue skies with a few clouds, and this scenery abound. Magnificent!

Then, before heading down Hwy 62 to Klamath Falls, I took another side road to capture this overview of the Umpqua National Forest.
