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.

... Ship. The Pinnacles were gorgeous and unexpected - mammoth charcoal spires sticking out of the side of steep cliffs. We didn’t know these existed within the park and they are so different from the other landscapes around the park. Plaikni Falls hike led to the falls after a short stroll through the woods, which would have been covered with wildflowers back in July but was lacking any by this time of August. The falls themselves were small ...
... gorgeous lake ..another one to behold in person if you ever get the chance. Fun fact learnt on this part of the trip, (which I had to share and which has nothing to do with the West Coast of the USA or RV-ing but here it is anyway): As you can imagine we have a lot of time in the campgrounds for reading so I have been devouring books. This week here is what I learnt from my book 'The Time Traveler’s Guide to Elizabethan ...
... down the side of the mountain (and then climb back up).
We drove out to the Pumice Desert to view the after effects of the eruption. It spewed some ash and pumice over now W US and SW Canada. In this area it is up to 300 feet deep and in the Pumice Desert nothing grows because of the density. Some facts...6 miles wide, deepest lake in US (1949 ft), one of the most clear as there are no streams running in or out, 31 caves within the rim ...
Linda and I had to chose what areas of Oregon that we wanted to see. We stayed in Sunriver mainly due to its proximity to Crater Lake National Park. I read about activities at Crater Lake, and I was getting excited. BUT! It's not the season. I started going to the National Park Service website ahead of time. I checked the webcams, particularly the one at the Rangers' Station, several times ...
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; ...
