We could now see the lake, but a great overlook was closed.
Look at that snow!
I took this picture because this toilet paper dispenser has an ash tray.
We talked to the very nice Park Ranger who helpfully circled the hikes that were open. On our way to the hikes, we stopped at Vidae Falls.
Matt attempts to be Vidae Falls.
This was a short mile hike.
The fog and mist were still hovering.
Off we go.
This hike had all these weird protrusions in the path. I'm not sure of their purpose. Maybe benches in the future?
Our view of Phantom Ship.
Some more of the blue.
"I think they don't want us to walk on this path" Linda astutely observed.
Sitting on a bench I could see nothing of the lake.
Still some snow.
Here's where the road is closed on the other side of Rim Drive.
Our next short hike was the Wildflower Trail.
The path took us along and through a little creek. You had to walk on the stones where the creek flowed. It was great.
More creek flowing across our path.
On the path.
The only wildflower we saw. Because late June is early spring at Crater Lake.
