Crater Lake is always beautiful, and right now it’s spectacular. This was a heavier-than-normal snow year, but now the weather is warm and sunny and visitors get to enjoy the last of the white stuff. This is a view from the Lodge on June 17 when we saw saw folks relaxing on the veranda, kids playing in the snow, and one young man successfully juggling snowballs. The north entrance to the park is expected to open by about June 25, but the south entrance is open year-round. On this day we saw license plates from California, Washington, Kansas (4 motorcycle couples), Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Idaho, Colorado,
Florida, and visited with a couple from Italy.
