Aspen Inn is a nice little motel close to Crater Lake. We had wanted to stay in the park, but everything was booked so we looked a little further out and found this place. It's about 7 miles to the park entrance and takes about 45 minutes to get to the rim. We had no trouble getting there in time for our boat tour. We stayed in the "honeymoon cabin", a little A-frame cabin. There are few amenities, coffee in the morning. The WiFi didn't work and there was only one station on the TV. But we're at Crater Lake and there are far better things to do than watch TV or surf the internet. The front desk staff was friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. Our only complaint was that the window on the second floor of the cabin (that we weren't allowed to go up to) was open and it got rather cold in the room overnight. We didn't figure this out until we were checking out. Other than that, we had a very nice stay and would consider staying here again, especially if we couldn't get lodging within the park.

... We sat at the top for a while admiring the view before making the descent back to the car. From there, it was time for Cleetwood Cove, which is the only access (legally) to the shore of the lake. It was a steep mile down, which meant it would be a steep mile back up, but we found it relatively easy. The best part of the hike was the varying colors of the water. The bright blues and turquoise greens are not that easy to differentiate from above, ...
Crater Lake in Oregon is one of those places that has been on my list for a very long time. I remember seeing it on a National Geographic special when I was a kid. I have been drawn to it ever since. I have always loved mountain lakes and Crater Lake is the Queen of all mountain lakes. The crater was formed from the caldera of a collapsed volcano. At it's deepest, the lake is 2000 feet deep. It is this depth ...
... the blog. The weather is jeans day since the high is only 60 so we headed south towards the big town of Shady Grove to look for a radiator cap for the Jeep We took a detour to check out Lost Creek Reservoir which is where the Rouge River goes in and comes out of a dam. The Rogue River is about 215 miles long, starts at Crater Lake (from water seeping thru the rocks and snow melt) and ends at the Pacific Ocean. We have been over and by it many ...
... I would love to go back sometime when we could hike down to the lake, travel to Wizard Island, and climb up to Watchman Peak. We saw the trail to Watchman Peak on this trip, but it was covered with several feet of snow. We had a lovely picnic on the rim instead.
We visited the ranger station and learned about the geology ...
We have been traveling I-5 down through Washington, Oregon and California and we finally figured out it was better to get a campground near I-5, unhook the car, and drive to these mountainous places in the car instead of putting Big Mo through all those hills and curves. This morning we took off for Crater Lake - about 2 hours away from the campground but much better in the overall driving category; ...
