Crater Lake

Crater Lake
Crater Lake from the Rim Trail.

Crater Lake truly is a wonder and we had a beautiful day to hike up to the Rim from Mazama Village.

We departed early and a hiker named Thug Life offered us a ride the mile and a half back to the Pacific Crest Trail trailhead.

We hiked up the PCT to Dutton Creek where the Crater Lake Rim alternate route begins. Rumors were circulating among the hikers back at Mazama Village of treacherous steep icy trails on the trail to Rim Village but we didn’t find anything dangerous, just a half mile of relatively easy snow.

Reaching Rim Village you see the first views of Crater Lake and it’s always amazing. Our hike followed the Crater Lake Rim about five miles around the lake until it splits off to the north toward Mount Thielsen.
