... State Park in Oregon, before heading to Crater Lake National Park. Well, it had to happen; no sites were available in Crater Lake campgrounds. So, we unhooked the car and left the RV near the store and toured the Park. This is the deepest lake in the contiguous States and the purest water in the world. Formed by an imploding volcano, Crater Lake is quite the sight to see. I will let some pictures tell the story of brilliant blue reflective waters framed ...
... Center (6,750 ft.) before beginning the climb so I stopped off for a cookie, apple and pepsi (brunch of campions). There I ran into 4 other adventure cyclists all heading south on the Sierra Cascades Cycling Route. There was Hans, Franz, and Heidi, all from Sweden, and Herman from Germany.

... considered, the trip could have been a lot worse. Needless to say we were happy to get home and the dog and cats were very happy to see us (read Anne) as well.
This trip chalked up our 33rd, 34th, and 35th parks so far. Stay tuned for the next trip, probably next May or June. Not sure where we will go but probably Southern California and/or Arizona - on a schedule that allows lots of time for connecting flights.
