East coast, West coast, who says we have to pick one? This week we are on the west, Oregon specifically. You would think Thailand would have ruined me for all non-tropical paradises, but this week, I’d love to be on another road trip with my favorite aunt touring the rocky beaches of Southern Oregon/Northern California once again.
First post in a while. There will be more later. Right now, an escape to the phenomenal Crater Lake National Park in Oregon is where I want to be. And I really do mean vanish… kind of like I did last week.
Another Oregon photo and quite possibly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been in the entirety of my travels. Crater Lake National Park is a must-see for anyone that lives or visits the United States. Over time, snowmelt and rain collected in the crater to form the lake, which at 1,949 feet deep, is presently the deepest in the USA, 2nd in North America, and 9th in the world. With no outside water source except from snow and rain, the water maintains this phenomenal shade of blue. I went on a five-mile, steep hike with my Aunt and Uncle for amazing views like this. I even saw snow piles…in August. After visiting some of the west coast National Parks, I realized how much more of America I need to see.
