A Day At Crater Lake, October 3

Today was full of adventures!  Some of the highlights were:

- eating breakfast while watching the sun rise over Crater Lake

- swimming in and drinking from the lake

- meeting and talking for awhile with two Swiss cyclists, Mario and Raffael

- hiking to the top of Mt Scott, the highest point in the park at just under 9,000 feet. From the top we could see Mt Shasta in the distance!

- biking to Cloudcap Overlook, the highest paved road in Oregon at just under 8,000 feet

- learning about flag trees, whose branches are all on one side due to constant, strong winds that make them look like flags in the wind

- hiking to Sun Notch and Tam doing a painting of the Phantom Ship

- biking the hilly 27 miles of the East Rim Drive

- ending the day with all-you-can-eat soup and salad. Yum!
