Road Trip: Crater Lake

We're in the process of planning our road trip down the west coast at the end of the month, which is quickly approaching. What? I haven't told you about our road trip? Forgive me, I've been too busy daydreaming at my desk about it.

I've done similar trips before - once with Stephanie as our high school graduation trip. Our parents weren't keen on the whole Mexico trip that everyone else went on, so we made our own fun and had a blast. A second time as a Spring Break trip in college with Mads, Autumn and Lizzie. It too, was a blast, even if I cringe at the pictures of us in sweats and no make-up for the entire trip. We took camping grunge to the max.

For sake of not boring you with every little detail of my latest road trip endeavor at once, I'll give you little insights about a couple stops along the way.

One stop: Camping at Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the United States. (Which would mean that we will have gone to 2 of the 3 deepest lakes in the US, Chelan and Crater. I guess Tahoe (#2) will have to wait.)

From all the pictures I've seen, it looks gorgeous! Impeccably blue and almost like a mirror to the landscape. Any recommendations on hikes or particular places to see at Crater Lake?

  1. you know, I lived in Oregon for almost 10 years and I've never been to Crater Lake! Have a great time, it looks beautiful!

    I love Tahoe, though :)

  2. Erika, these photos are astounding, just breathtaking!
