At Crater Lake, Oregon, this is the only waterfall.

Next was Crater Lake.  Formed from a volcano, in case you can’t tell by the name, this huge deep lake is such a royal blue color and the rock rim around it is magnificent that it took lots of pictures to get us away.  We also stopped part way around it for a nice water fall.  Vidae Falls cascades down the hill for a long distance and when it finally gets near the highway it just stops in a small pool and disappears.  Amazing how volcanic rock just lets the water drain into it.

 

We stopped at the Village for a bite to eat and a souvenir haul.  A nice spoon again for the wife a couple of postcards for me.  It was about 55 at the village, but the wind was blowing hard and it was extremely cold.  NO one was in short sleeves.  Jackets, hoodies, and sweatshirts on everyone, and I finally got my wife to admit it was cold!

 

On around the lake and several stops provided more interesting and beautiful pictures before heading on north for Diamond Lake and more waterfalls.

My wife NEVER admits to being cold and has never owned a coat. But she not only admitted being cold but actually went back to the car to get out of the wind and cold.
