Crater Lake Pictures - A Natural Wonder Of The World

Crater Lake National Park is considered by some to be one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world. If you've never seen it then maybe these Crater Lake pictures will give you some idea of how incredible this place is.

The intense blue of the lake under a clear winter sky is a sight you won't be able to experience anywhere else in the world. To gaze across the six mile wide expanse of this ancient volcanic caldera is truly something to behold. Bring your camera when you visit Crater Lake National Park because you will surely want to remember what you've experienced here.

Featured below are pictures of Crater Lake from vacationers just like you that have experienced the overwhelming beauty of this remote National Park. Much of the year Crater Lake is covered in snow. It has an average annual snowfall of more than 500 inches making it one of the snowiest places in the United States. Enjoy the pictures and keep checking back as they will update as more are added.

Reflecting on Goals

Reflecting on Goals

At the start of 2018, I told myself that this would be the year that I would complete the Centennials (the highest 100 mountains in Colorado). For no great reason, I wanted to finish my goal before I turned 40 (I'm 39). It was a somewhat lofty goal considering I had lost my job in January, started a new job in February, and was not in the best physical shape of my life. I started this goal officially in 2009 and game out of the gates in a hurry. I had a headstart, having started climbing peaks when I was 4-years-old (1982). I had completed 22 / 100 by the end of 1998 when I was in college, but took a very long hiatus after that. I only completed 5 more peaks from 1998 to 2008. That means that between 2009 and the end of 2018, I completed 73 of the highest 100 mountains. That feels substantial.

I completed this goal and took the time to reflect upon that accomplishment by gazing at the Milky Way from Crater Lake below the Maroon Bells.

A few thanks are in order -

Thanks to Silas Musick for being such an amazing climbing partner. We celebrated on 14 of those 100 summits together and I consider you my best friend - all because of our mutual passion for mountains and the outdoors. You're a beautiful human.

Thanks to Natalie Moran for taking me up Jagged, Dallas, and Teakettle. You're a fabulous climber and a great person.

Thanks to Terry Matthews (RIP) for accompanying me on my first class 3 climbs in 2008 when I got back into this pursuit. You are missed.

Thanks to Ethan Beute - our climbs on obscure 13ers kept me going - miss you man!

Thanks to Regina Primavera - you're a great friend and it has been fun catching summits with you since 2011.

And lastly, thanks to my parents for getting me going on this crazy journey 35 years ago.

I created my little website in 2009 mostly to teach myself how to build one but also to document and share my journey with my friends and family. I know my dad regrets not having something similar to look back on. Hope it?s at least been somewhat useful to others as well.

Next up? I have no idea. I don't think it?s the bi-centennials.

I have some photography projects I want to tackle, including a book of photos of the Centennials...

They sure look like chipmunks . . . the ground squirrels around Crater Lake seem to be accustomed to being fed by the tourists, because they have no fear of people.

Yes, they're cute, but only the 3rd-cutest animal I saw this trip (after the otters and weasel)

The water Crater Lake is so clear! And that gives it a deep, rich blue . . . Cropped to 16x9 for use as a desktop background. Location is approximate; I'm not quite sure which little pull-out I was in.
