The first time I heard about Crater Lake National Park, I knew I had to go. I’ve been so obsessed with it for a long time; randomly going on spurts when I would spend hours looking at pictures of it on the Internet. It looked so gorgeous, and after visiting, I can say without reservation that it is the most beautiful place I have ever been.
We visited Crater Lake in late May, and when we were first planning our trip for our anniversary, we didn’t realize that there would still be snow at the 6,000 foot elevation crater. I was in a panic when I went to their website to look for a campsite and found that their campground was closed until early June. Luckily, though, I soon discovered that it had opened earlier this year since it had been a light winter and we would be able to get a site.
