Northwest Road Trip - September, 2017 - #10

After a great dinner at Judy's with her, Nancy, and Bob, we left the next morning for Crater Lake. This was the first night we did not have a hotel room reserved. We weren't sure whether we'd go to Crater Lake or not, with all the smoke from the fires. We did wonder about it, with all the smoke we saw on the way. You can see a couple photos I took from Eugene. However, it turned out that the lake was clear -- and beautiful.

Crater Lake!

The lodges and buildings by the Lake were really pretty. All that wood and stone.









Wished we could stay in the lodge and enjoy this view from the veranda.

The blue of the water was beautiful.



The lake was bigger than I expected.
Randy was here when he was 10 years old and he said it was bigger than he remembered, too.

Randy got some good shots of birds that were flitting around.




Shadows on the edges.
A nice couple took our picture for us.



You can see a little bit of snow still out there!
On the way to the hotel in Medford, we stopped to look at the Rogue River. Beautiful, too, and Randy thought it'd be fun to come back and camp and fish someday.

It was a FANTASTIC road trip!! To see all the photos, go to:
