Incredible Crater Lake Covered with Snow

Chris painted me in his own words a picture of Crater Lake with immeasurable beauty, a deep, pure lake, so blue in color; sheer surrounding cliffs, almost two thousand feet high above the sea level, two picturesque islands; and a violent volcanic past...So we could not wait to pay her a visit.

Chris and I have successfully managed to keep our tradition of travel. Regardless of the efforts to follow with the weather forecast and the detailed trip planning, we are bound to experience the full range of temperatures from summer to winter within one single trip.

This time was not an exception either. We started from wearing short-sleeve t-shirt in Sunnyvale, CA, watched the beautiful fall colors on the way to Bend, and showed up at the snowy Crater Lake totally unprepared. Fortunately the lodge at the Crater Lake has a gigantic fire place and tasty chili soup to warm us up.
