My foot is somewhat better and I’m not limping like I was.
The PCT splits and the “Official” trail avoids the lake. The old route still follows around the south west side before heading north. The only catch: no camping near the crater. Big fine!
So I cheated and took the shuttle from Mazama Village to the Visitors Center. It avoids a 6 mile grind gaining 1,100ft in elevation to the rim. Sue me.
The lake is nice, but doesn’t do tricks. I’m off.
One thought on “Goodbye Crater Lake”
Pretty blue water but the surrounding landscape not so much!
Time to move on!
