Post post – Crater Lake

Repeat after me, “Incredibly Blue”. Clarity. We got there in good time through the twisty turns of pine forests, over the Umquat, past the colliding rivers, down to Ft Klamath & back again to meet the trolley & ranger for our guided tour. Splendid. Wizard Island to the phantom ship and up to the pinnacle…and down again with tales of founders, gold miners and those who have added to the legends by giving their lives in an ill advised photo op or insistence on a better view. Stand back.

One of the great national park lodges provided our afternoon tea in comfort with dazzling views. Then a long sojourn of hairpin turns, dappled light and delicious cool air en route to Ashland.
