Crater Lake is known for its blues… but when you’re there at sunrise or sunset, the colors you get to see are so unbelievably magical.
We had already planned to wake up early, but did not expect to witness the most magnificent sunrise. We felt like we had the whole place to ourselves because no one was around us. This place is also very special to us because it was the last road trip we were able to take Layla on before she passed away.
Experiences like this always remind us to appreciate and love the little things in life. ❤️
Look at those colors!! 😍
Our little family at sunset.
This viewpoint was perfect. It felt like the lake wrapped all around you.
Sometimes you gotta hide behind a bush to get those ~*angles*~ of Wizard Island. Photography can be a pretty funny hobby.
The girls and the moon.
Mount Thielsen in all of its glory in the early morning.
Sunsets here are pretty darn great, too.
This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.
If Crater Lake isn’t on your bucket list yet, it should be!
