Day 13 – Crater Lake National Park

We left Redwoods hesitantly. We could have stayed another night. However, we didn’t want to change campgrounds so decided, slowly, to start heading east.

Crater Lake is in Oregon and is in a very remote area. As we were driving, we weren’t even sure anyone else was with us in the park until we got much closer.

Unlike many of the parks we have visited this trip, Crater Lake is what was created after Mount Mazama blew centuries ago. It is a beautifully serene lake with Wizard Island rising as a mini volcano within the lake.

Cold. Like lower 40’s at 3 in the afternoon.

We got one of the last few campsites available at Mazama Campground. We opted to sleep in the suburban instead of setting up our tent or hammocks.

Tomorrow headed to southern Idaho.
