Crater Lake

I camped at the base of Crater Lake in an Oregon Snow Park, which is basically a plowed parking lot adjacent to a snow play area. It was actually quite nice-- vault toilets, very quiet, and there was even a warming hut where I could cook and eat out of the snow and cold. The night's low reached 5 degrees fahrenheit and I woke up in an ice box (for the first but not last time on this winter trip). Up early to snowshoe before sunrise. I thought I would snowshoe and overnight in the backcountry, but I was afraid I would die so I decided to just hike before dawn. In these frigid temperatures it just takes so long to put on all my clothes and gear! Just to find it all takes forever! I finally got everything on and snowshoes strapped onto my boots and set out into the great unknown.
