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 had planned to re-visit Crater Lake again today to do a trolley ride with a guide around the Rim Road but having had the guided tour on the boat and driven the rim ourselves on the way home yesterday we conferred this morning and decided to have a lazy day. After a slow start we took advantage of our "landlady"s" laundry to do some washing and then headed into the local small town of Chiloquin to do some food shopping. ...
... had quite the workout the past few days. The haul up the mountain was long and difficult but the view at the top of the Three Sisters mountain range was breath taking! The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) follows along the western side of the range. We have added this trail to our bucket list. For those of you who don't know about the PCT... you should look it up! The book and new movie "Wild" are about a female that hiked the entire trail ...
... our 70-floor climb in again. It's so nice and quiet here. Funny fact by the way: these aren't dead volcanos. Just sleeping. Till? Mount St Helens, Lassen all erupted in the last century. One never knows. This gem of nature could be gone next year. After coming back be first cleaned our bunkers. Our friendly neighbor -who actually just was after our spot till he found out I'm a disabled- helped us with some cleaning tools. I'll leave out how Alice helped here. Then we showered ...
... was only 2 miles roundtrip.
We had lunch at the Rim Village.
Mt. Scott Hike
After lunch we went to our 2nd hike...this one was not as successful as earlier hike. This one was 2.5 miles each way, strenuous (steep) and in the hot afternoon sun. Mt. Scott is the highest point in the park, but it was a low point of the ...
... the most beautiful blue ever. Crater lake is the deepest lake in the US at over 1900feet! We parked and walked to the viewing area and it was spectacular! It is so blue and crisp and clear. It is hard to believe that it all formed from a volcano. The water looks so refreshing. We stopped at a view other viewing point and the lodge for a little looksee. We stopped at a little waterfall where we dipped our hands in for a little refreshing. We went ...
