Crater Lake Day 2

After having a chance to view the lake from the Rim Drive we were excited to get out on the water and see the lake from “below” the Rim. We got a early start because our  lake tour required we return approximately half way around the Rim to the Cleetwood Cove Trail, the only legal access to th shore of Crater Lake and the site of the Park Services lake tour launch facility.  The trail is a 1.1 mile, 11% grade with numerous switchbacks.4C23D771-60C1-456C-8A4C-ED47C8901A60

The video below is a bit long at 8 minutes since it includes much of a Ranger Dave’s presentation on the history and geology of Crater Lake.
