Day One With a Few Photos.....

We are on a fun little road trip-
a weeks long vacation-
first going to Bend, 
then to Baker City
 and finally to Portland
for a friends wedding.
Going from Hwy 62 to Hwy 230
we were going past Crater Lake..
so we paused for a nice detour- 

First we saw Mount Thielsen
before turning off for Crater Lake-
 the deepest lake in the US

Driving through the Pumice Desert

and finally stopping to look at Wizard Island
and Crater Lake

On our return to Hwy 230
we stopped for a nice photo of
Mount McLoughlin.
More pics tomorrow!


  1. Never been there but I imagine it's an amazing sight. Your photos are really great.

  2. Yep, you're in some beautiful countryside. I'd love to see all that for real. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Have a fabulous day. Big hugs. ☺

  3. Wizard Island looks from that pic like it lives up to its name! Glad you are enjoying your trip.

  4. Few shades of blue are as vivid as Crater Lake. Glad you got a chance to see it.

  5. Love the pictures. I haven't been in that area before. It looks amazing. Have a safe trip.
