Crater Lake and Wizard Island

@CraterLakeNPS #WinterIsComing #CraterLake

The temperature is supposed to hit the 90s today and the next couple days so here is something to cool those of you in the Rogue Valley off.

Weather forecast for Ashland today is 100 degrees and very unhealthy smoke conditions.

Today’s photo comes from a trip I took to Crater Lake in March of 2016. I wouldn’t mind those conditions right now.

Snowy sunset

Sunset looking away from Crater Lake

Thursday I headed to Crater Lake, and surrounding areas, with two goals. I failed to reach either goal.

My first goal was to snowshoe to Muir Creek Falls from the Claude Lewis Trailhead parking lot. Didn’t quite happen. More on that later.

My second goal was to capture a sunset, for the first time, at Crater Lake. Today’s photo is as close as I got. Those clouds on the right covered the lake and turned into thick fog as well just minutes after I took this photo. I had high hopes too, as Crater Lake looked like this less than an hour before sundown.

UG MiM students @ Crater Lake

Last summer I taught in Guanajuato, Mexico for SOU’s MiM program. One MiM student from Ashland traveled to Mexico to take the class. The Mexican students got to thinking that they should do what that Ashland student did and take a MiM class in Ashland. So this summer most of my class from last summer came to Ashland and took a class. On their off day we went to Crater Lake.

Snowshoeing on Crater Lake’s West Rim Drive

Although Crater Lake’s snow pack is less than 30% of normal for this time of year, it is one of the few places in Southern Oregon with any snow. After bailing on our attempt to snowshoe near the Upper Rogue River due to lack of snow, we did enjoy a walk from the Rim Village to Discovery Point in 60 degree temperatures. Snowshoes weren’t absolutely necessary, but they were useful at times.

Today’s photo is from this past October. It was not a great day for photography as the sun never made an appearance. The rain began to fall shortly before I took this picture, and it only increased in intensity as the day continued.
