Crater Lake was a new discovery for me this trip. I took hundreds of pictures there. Heck, have one more:
That’s Wizard Island, the secondary cone. Crater Lake is about six miles across and 2,000 feet deep.
Aw, shucks, here’s one more, ’cause you’ve got to see the Phantom Ship:
Now to the Willamette National Forest. Here’s the view coming in towards the resort town of Detroit:
Below is where I like to hike around Devil’s Creek:
My family has been going to Mt. Rainier since the 1920’s.
Mt. Rainier the first evening at sunset.
Clear weather is not always a given at the mountain, which makes its own weather!
I love bracket fungus and the dew drops caught my attention.
This lake can be seen by the road if you travel towards Sunrise (east) at Mt. Rainier. I’ll put pictures up of the view at Sunrise some other time.
This great view of Myrtle Falls is only a 7 minute walk from the parking lot at Paradise.
Narada Falls is too big to fit into any camera view, so I just put it in the background for this shot.
Evening sun on the mountain.
I hope you enjoy these, it’s hard to choose favorites from 2600 photos! I’ll put more up some other time if you like.
