We were thrilled to finally get a chance to visit Crater Lake National Park. Karen had a brief visit on a prior trip to the area but I had never seen it. We decided to overnight in a Park cabin so we’d have more than on day to explore. We arrived after lunch and spent most of our first day taking the 33 mile Rim Drive which circumnavigates the Lake.
After we checked in to the cabin we heads back up to Crater Lake Lodge for dinner. Like each of the National Park lodges we had visited the architecture harkens back to a grand era of US National Park history. Dinner was a fabulous change of pace from Oregon seafood with each of us choosing a delicious Oregon grass fed steak!
Here are the highlights of day 1.
