Driving Journey: Day 3: Crater Lake

Visiting Crater Lake was definitely the highlight of my trip. I had seen incredible photos of it before but just assumed that they had been tweaked with photo software.

But when my eyes first saw the magnificent blue color of the water it was hard to believe that it was really "that" blue!

No one is allowed to climb down except employees.

You can stay overnight at this lodge.
Is it just me, or do you see a face here too?

Once you get to the rim then you can drive around it, stopping at any vistas you wish. This is a typical section of the Rim Road.
Mt. Mazama, adjacent to Crater Lake is but one of many mountains that run up & down Washington, Oregon, & California.
