We took off yesterday afternoon for Crater Lake, it is unbelievably close, only 35 miles from our campsite to the rim. It was the coolest place around that I could think of to escape the 90 degree plus heat we have been having. The view of the enormous lake filled crater is always awesome to view. (Notice the snow at the bottom of the rim on the left side.) The other thing that was impressive is that the parking lot at Rim Village has been moved to behind the buildings and replaced with paths and landscaping. It makes for a great area to walk and view the crater, a wonderful improvement that restores ones faith in progress.
