I was repeatedly told that if going to Oregon, we had to see Crater Lake. Stopping in Klamath Falls, we learned that the northern entrance to Crater Lake was closed as was the circuit drive around the lake. We entered through the southern entrance and drove along the gorge that flanks the highway. Arriving at the Lake we climbed a 20 foot snow bank to get our first glimpse of Crater Lake... Everyone that told us "we had to see the lake" were right! If you haven't been there we highly recommend you put it on your bucket list!!
