The clearest, most blue body of water we have ever seen! Crater Lake National Park is an amazing sight to behold. In July of 2016, we spent an evening and a day in and on Crater Lake.
We arrived in the park through the West Entrance in the afternoon and visited the rim village before enjoying a light supper on the back porch of the lodge. It was a great way to spend an evening!
The next morning, we had tickets for a boat tour on Crater Lake and a Wizard Island Tour. For ticket information, you can click here. The drive to meet the boat was stunning that morning! The lake was so calm! It was like a mirror. The boat tour was a fantastic way to view the Lake and formations on the lake. It was a ranger-guided tour, so we could ask questions and get information that we wouldn't necessarily get. Hiking to the top of Wizard Island for lunch was a plus too.
After our boat tour and hike back up from Cleatwood Cove, we drove the rim drive and stopped at pullouts to see if we could identify the areas that were pointed out from the boat. What a difference that perspective was?! See the video of our day below.
Our hike to Wizard Island video is here. It was one of our first videos ever created. (So fun to look back.)
Our visit to Crater Lake National Park was a highlight of our trip. It is certainly a place we will return. Until next time, keep on trekking!
Kay and Matt enjoy hiking all over the USA. We have a YouTube Channel to video our adventures, this blog, and we are working on building an app to allow others to go on adventures too.
