Crater Lake

Karen and I just got back from a three-day weekend in southern Oregon, the highlight of which has to be proclaimed as seeing Crater Lake. Oh my lord, what a spectacular place that is. It was snowed in at the rim, so we got only a limited view, but it was truly incredible.

We drove down Friday to Pat and Bill’s (Karen’s aunt and uncle), who live near the town of Merlin, OR. That alone is pretty darn nice, but then we took saturday and spent it road tripping around to Crater Lake and a couple of really beautiful falls.

The pics are still in the camera, so some of those will just have to wait. And the drive home was (at you might expect) exhausting, so I’m hitting the sack.
