Sunrise is always much more enjoyable than sunset.
The same colors.
Did I mention it’s less crowded?
This was just a few days ago. I’m glad we bagged it, as it’s been snowing like crazy all day yesterday and into this morning. I’m sure that’s beautiful too, but it doesn’t look like the Park Service is maintaining the road up to this viewpoint too well right now. But I suspect that’s normal.
Winter appears to be here. Not only was it snowing like crazy up at Crater Lake, but also in the mountains around town. And with the next several days below freezing even down here on the valley floor, the snow on the slopes will stick. A perfect start to the base for the ski runs.
Bring it on!
