Crater LakeCrater Lake, Oregon

September 24, 2008

When we crossed over the border into Oregon, we were as weary as we'd ever been, but we could resist one more national park to add to our list (making it seven). Crater Lake was just an hour or so out of the way, and if we hurried, we could make it there before dark.

We made it, but it was so bitter cold that we didn't feel much like lingering. We walked a little around the rim and checked out the lodge, which is a beautiful, stately place.

Then it was back on the road for us, in time for a gorgeous sunset. Perfect way to end the trip.
