National Parks – Crater Lake

Crater Lake is possibly the most stunning of all the National Parks simple because first, you don’t see it and then you do. With the lake’s rich and textured blue it is a one-of-a-kind moments to be remembered for a lifetime. A trip by car around the lake is an easy drive, even with snow along the road, you can do it. The legend is that the bluebirds were once a dull grey, but they dipped their wings into the lake and it forever changed them. If you want a great trip to a very small National Park, then you should move this one to the top of the list of must-see’s and rest well in the cool mountain air before heading to your next destination.
Soak in the blue of sky and water and, for the adventurous, take a walk from the road to the lake shore. They say it is about 700-feet down to the lake and 7000-feet back up to the road. Boat trips are available to the small island. The boat? It was brought in by helicopter as was the cabin on that Wizard Island. This is the place of fairy tales and beautiful scenery surrounded by fresh invigorating mountain air.
