Reflecting on Crater Lake

Rocking chairs line the back deck of the Crater Lake Lodge. The perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and this incredible view!

No lolly gagging around for us this Sunday morning…we headed out bright and early, anxious to explore exciting new territory. Back in January Reg had made reservations for us to spend one night at the Crater Lake Lodge and tonight was the night.

As you can see, our day was perfect and it was made even better by the opening of the Rim Road Drive just a day or two ago…several weeks ahead of schedule. This meant we were able to drive the entire 32 mile loop around the lake.

This rock formation, which seems to be floating in Crater Lake, is the smaller of two islands. It is known as Phantom Ship.

The Cleetwood Cove Trail is the only way to get down to the shore. Cloud cap Overlook provided a scenic lunch spot. Wizard Island is the larger of two islands in Crater Lake.

    The lake looks like a puzzle on a card table which is the only view I have had. You are great travelers and I appreciate your willingness to share your adventures with those of us at home.
    Go CAVS!!! Not a Laker fan in sight around here.

      Watching the changing sunlight over the lake was magical. I had no idea Crater Lake would be so beautiful. Sue
