The Rim drive around Crater Lake

As soon as I stepped onto the smooth volcanic sand, Crater Lake captured my heart.
Trees that seemed to bend in unnatural positions stood like deformed soldiers overlooking the crown jewel of blue water.
Clouds that formed and gathered in mighty numbers, creating shadow dances across the land.
Precipices that beckon you to walk to their edge, just a little farther, you can do it…
Mountains that bear your name, with trails that wrap you around the core of stone, the heart of the mountain top.
Ferocious winds that try to knock one off the edge as they take a giddy selfie in this sacred land.
Inspiring views everywhere as one makes their way around Crater Lake, enjoying a day of driving, hiking, photographing, and just being….
in the crown of Southern Oregon.
