We took a trip up to Crater Lake on Monday the 6th with MeMaw, Stacey, Blake, Brookelynn, Sydney, Rikki and Alex. The weather was perfect and the lake was beautiful. I am still amazed by it even though I have been there several times. On this visit I missed the turn off to Hwy 62 and we ended up taking an unitentional rim drive. Well worth the mistake, I have never done it before and it is an amazing drive, leaves you a little on the edge of your seat, the road has small shoulders if any in places and a very steep drop to the lake. It took us an additional hour to get around it but I am so glad we did it, I would recommend it to anyone. Next time I want to do the 2 hour lake tour, but I will need to get in better shape to make it down the steep grade to the boats and then out. The kids enjoyed the lake but were much more impressed with the chimpmunks, or squirrels, whatever they were. (There seemed to be some debate around the lake as to what exactly they are..) The photo of the kids in the grass is, I believe, overlooking the Klamath Valley and Klamath Lake. Never notice that before from up there either.
