Crater Lake

First Time Ever!
The Park Service closed the road (except for a few miles) around Crater Lake to cars. Which meant cyclists could enjoy the ride without fear of being run off a narrow winding road by a car or motorhome.
Since this was an opportunity we couldn't pass up we rode it on Saturday since Sunday was predicted (and they were right) to be rainy.

This was our first visit and we were very impressed. It's a spectacular place. Hope you enjoy the photos we took of our ride.

The Lake is so clear that the reflections are amazing!
