It was on this day trip that we began to see a theme arise in our adventures. The geysers at Yellowstone, The Lava fields, and then Crater Lake…volcanic activity was all around us. It’s as if volcanic stuff is the tornado and Mandy and John are Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton. The lake is actually a collapsed volcano, which is pretty radical. It also has some spectacularly blue water from rain and snowmelt accumulated over 800 years. That we promptly defiled with our hike-sweaty bodies.
That pint-o-ice cream in a waffle cone was 2 bucks. Seriously. we went back again just for more. We drive a lot these days, but Oregon is gorgeous all of the time. So we basically are in a state of scenic bliss most of the day. //M&J
