Crater Lake National Park

Sunday, August 21, 2016

Crater Lake is the deepest lake in North America ,  second deepest in the world and the bluest thing I've ever seen in my life. If you never been here, then you've never actually been in Oregon.  The drive through is about 4 hours from Portland to the park. About two hours of the drive consist of forest all around you. After paying the $15.00 entrance fee we drove to the Rim of the lake. When we arrived we saw a masterpiece in front of our eyes. This lake was surreal  its a little bit windy  but the lake was smooth as glass.

The weather was beautiful, it wasn't too hot for the month of August. Lucky for us there wasn't much crowd that day . We drove around the entire lake, each viewpoint stop gives us a different view. We are considering to revisit this place,  our goal for next trip is to take the  boat tour, trolley, and hike all the way up.  Will update until then. Please find the time and go enjoy this gem in the beautiful state of Oregon.

To think this was a volcano preserved in time just makes me appreciate what Mother Earth has created for us.

 Overseeing Wizard Island: Words cannot express how beautiful the view from here. I'm amazed at how well my pictures came out, but it seriously does not measure up to seeing it in person.

Was it the reflection of the clear blue skies or what?

Real life painting in front of me.


On the 2nd of August we celebrate our ten beautiful years of marriage. I am in disbelief that the time has passed so quickly, and yet I can think back and see how full these ten years have been. We have walked through so much together. We've been blessed to travel along with many US destinations.

  2. What a gorgeous place! These are the kinds of places that have always interested me the most. Places that were basically carved out with nature's butcher knife.

  15. Crater Lake is indeed an amazing sight to see for sure and it really looks like it would make anyone treasure what mother nature gives us. I have never see a lake that calm or that blue. This is something I will have to share with my family for a sight we need to see. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos.
