Crater Lake

“Blue thou art, intensely blue.”   J. Montgomery

You know that old phrase “Will wonders never cease?”  Well that’s just how I’m beginning to feel.  Yesterday we closed out a great week in Oregon with a few hours at Crater Lake before moving on the California.  Today we did several of the Redwoods National Parks.  Those photos will be in my next post, but honestly, it’s incredible how glorious nature really is.  For now, back to Crater Lake.  It was an amazing sight, huge and a deeper blue than you can imagine, still surrounded by snow.  It’s got to be seen to be believed.

  1. Great photos. Was it really so “blue”? So beautiful that it didn’t look real. Your trip looks great. Love, Joan

    • Hi Joan. Yep, I didn’t color or saturate them at all. It’s incredible. It’s because the lake is not fed by rivers so there is absolutely no sediment in it. Having a ball! T

  2. wasn’t sure if that was snow ..just incredible…snow in July….love the ‘blue on blue’! great stuff!
