On our way home, we spent a day at Crater Lake National Park. It has been 4 years since we were last there. This is a place where you first look over the rim at the lake and just say, Oh My!! It is really gorgeous and so I had to take a bunch of photos. On this trip, the eastern rim road was still closed because of snow, and the northern entrance and western rim road had just opened a few days before we arrived, so there was lots of snow visible. It was calm so the reflections on the lake were great. It looked like there was still a skim of ice on the lake below us.
At Discovery Point, the birds and chipmunks were active so we stopped and watched them cavort for quite a while. We could see many peaks in Oregon, and could see Mount Shasta, too. Then it was time to return to our base camp at Valley of the Rogue State Park along I-5 before starting home the next day.
Retirement is great. We bought a travel trailer and are exploring National Parks. (Actually, we bought one and sold it and bought a second one better suited to us. It happens...) And I have time to do some woodworking projects and things around the house. And now I have gotten interested in ham radio so there goes any free time.
