Jimmy RiversBeautiful lake, great weather!  Sucess!

First time to Crater Lake, and it was spectacular to see. Snow still covered much of the banks of the lake, and the road was only open halfway around the lake. We put on our crampons and climbed up to the Watchmen Tower, which was another awesome view and fun to do!! Great place to see all around.

Date approximate. Singing this one because I hiked down to Cleetwood Cove and touched the waters of Crater Lake, which I think counts as a sort of "reverse summit" accomplishment.

Hiked Garfield Peak - "trail closed" but snow supportable. Tried Crater Peak but no tracks to mark route on snow. The only trail without snow was Cleetwood Cove!

This is a great park. I camped for free on the PCT, and got a boat ride to wizard Island. Did swimming and hiking, cool place to visit, although you run out of things to do once your do everything...

I've climbed about a half-dozen peaks in the park during 2 or 3 visits over the years. The lake is spectacularly beautiful.

The first time I did it solo and got a great photo of Theilsen to
the north. A Park Ranger helped me out in getting my car started up again, after it had stalled in front of the VC. I just did the normal trails to the north. In May 2003, I came in from the south with my wife. A sign had said the road was closed, but it turned
out everything was open. I remember seeing Mount Shasta and
Mount McLaughlin from the road going up to the lake, so it was
a clear day. My wife and I just played around in a snowbank,
looked down at the lake and dreamed.

Often visited with my family when we lived out west. I wondered what it might be like 1,000 feet below the surface in the crater's black, cold waters. I also had a great fondness for Wizard Island. Have spent a fair amount of time hiking and exploring the area.

We spent 3 days here hiking and exploring. Hiked Mount Scott, Elevation, 8929', then all the smaller trails. The second day we did The Watchman, elevation 8013', then Discovery Point trail, castle crest wildflower trail, and the Pinnacles. The third day we saw the Annie creek Trail and then did the Cleetwood Cove trail for the boat tour. Next visit we'll have to tackle Garfield Peak the only one we didn't do...I think I wore my family out!

Great to be back at my childhood idea of nirvana! Had a great trip up Hillman Peak. This was a great and beautiful side note to a otherwise somber trip to Oregon.

Climbed the Watchman with the family. Devin is getting stronger and was able to make the entire climb up. The area is really beautiful. Can't wait to return to climb some of the other peaks in southern Oregon.
