Roadtripping the Pacific Northwest – Crater Lake

After our lovely kick-off in Portland we would head south to discover Oregon’s natural beauty. Crater Lake National Park was our destination for two days and I can tell you: It was beautiful beyond words! As luck would have it, it was also my birthday and so we decided to get up at 4 am in the morning and watch the sun rise behind Mount Mazama. Cuddled up in our outdoor jackets, we were observing the still surface of Crater Lake and couldn’t help but wonder once the sun bathed our surroundings in amazing colours.

A little warmed up by the rays of sunlight but still shivering, we hurried back to our cute little cabin in the woods of Union Creek Resort.

And after a little nap and a hot shower there was, of course, this stack of huge, fluffy pancakes awaiting us…

Once the sun stood high we returned to the lake as it is particularly famous for its royal blue colour deriving from its depth and extreme clarity.

After our tour around whole Crater Lake a happy birthday girl got her chocolate ice cream and felt a bit like a daughter of the woods.
