Behold the beauty that is Crater Lake:
Last month, several friends from Boston visited us in Oregon so we could explore Crater Lake. We drove from Portland to Bend, then Crater Lake, then up to the Coast for a few days of road trippin', camping, and hiking.
Crater Lake, as you can see, is a sight to behold, and a must-visit if and when you're in Oregon. (It's a little over four hours from Portland). Mazama Village Campground was perfect for our "glamping" adventure - once you reserve a spot ahead of time, you can drive to find a vacant campsite, park your car right there, and unload accordingly. (The only odd thing is that, even though we reserved a spot, we still had to drive around to find a vacant one versus having our own spot pre-claimed).
Many hikes are within a short driving distance from Mazama, boasting gorgeous views at all angles of the mighty lake.
It was a fantastic trip - one I wish we had time to do again before we leave! (More on that soon...).
Have you taken any fun trips lately?
