Crater Lake, OR
I’ve been wanting to go to Crater Lake for a long time. Its funny when I was living in California I for some reason could never make a plan to go there. But now that I am on the other coast I was really itching to go there. Finally, the plan materialized and I flew to SF and from there my friend and I drove 9 hours to Crater Lake. 13 inches of snow had fallen that week and we reached right after the blizzard. The snow was fresh and it was white all around, but on the down side none of the trails were open. There was just 1 access point where of-course all the visitors were standing to get the view. Because of heavy clouds we got some good over cast and around 3-4 pm I got a few decent shots.
My friend and I then decided to come back early in the morning the next day. We were oping to get those magical colors but that did not happen. Light was blue at 5 in the morning and by 6am everything became gray. Below is what I managed to get.
