We drove up to Crater Lake this morning. (For those readers in the South, the lake is in Oregon.) This lake is the deepest of all lakes in the US, around 2,000ft – just a bit deeper than Lake Pontchartrain. It’s 6 miles wide and has a little island in the middle of it called “Wizard Island.”
We got to the lake at exactly the right time. The clouds had just opened up for a matter of minutes so we could see the lake clearly. Did I mention that it was in the low 20’s and snowing? It was freezing, but it was one of the most breathtaking scenes I’ve ever seen..

We ate lunch in the warm lodge – including clam chowder, a burger, an omelette, and hot chocolate and then bundled up to face the fierce snowstorm outside.
