Crater Lake, Oregon

In an unusual burst of good timing, a recent trip to Crater Lake and the Rogue River National Forest in Oregon was absolutely done at the best possible time. We had 70+ degree days, no rain, no wind, only a few tourists, and the most wonderful pine-scented air to breathe. I came home with lots of pictures, but unfortunately I couldn't bring any of the air.

  I took this from the car window as we were driving along the road to our rental cabin.

There are many, many hiking trails in this area and you never have to go very far to find a river or a waterfall.

Although it would have been exciting to see a cougar, it's probably a very good thing that we didn't!  We kept our eyes open for Bigfoot too!

The little store where we purchased odds and ends while staying at the cabin in the woods. We are so used to having a television and the cabin did not have one so we purchased a set of dominoes here and spent one whole evening playing.

If you have never been to Crater Lake, try to make it some day. It is one of the most amazing natural sights I've ever seen. It helps when the weather is perfect like this, too!  The big island is called Wizard Island.

This little island is called the Phantom Ship.

I hope you enjoyed the photos. 
I'm very behind in showing you the great postcards I've been getting, but stay tuned, they will be coming.
