Smack-dab in the middle of a Pacific Northwest winter, I came up with a stellar idea. Let’s go camping in the Olympics! Even with my over the top enthusiasm, I couldn’t find anyone else to agree with this plan. Sure, the weather might be a bit much, but that wasn’t going to stop me…nooo sir!
Located in Southern Oregon, in the Umpqua National Forest, Crater Lake National Park is said to be one of the country’s crown jewels. The crater, now filled with water, is the second deepest lake (1,932 ft) in North America, it is 6 mi wide and lies 6,164 ft above sea level. There is a road that runs around the entire lake, however, it is only open during summer months.
