Crater Lake

Crater Lake was an interesting experience for us. We had no idea that it was more of a viewing park and not much of a backpacking area. Because we were so set on the idea of hiking up the crater, we decided to drive down the mountain and hike back up it (to one of the tallest peaks on the crater). We got up to the lake just as the sun was finishing setting, so we missed the picture that we were hoping to get. We ended up camping on top of Garfield peak after hiking in the pitch black dark for an hour or two to get to the top of the peak. Well worth the climb.
