Crater Lake Ride the Rim

September 24, 2019

Each September, Crater Lake National Park closes the loop around the lake to cars for two weekends. We went and participated in the Ride the Rim event this year and got a pocket of perfect weather among the many days of rain. It was a great first trip to Crater Lake.

If you would like a print, or full resolution file of any of the images feel free to reach out to me at

It’s so nice to ride without the stress and noise of cars whizzing past.

My favorite lookout on the ride. You can see the Phantom Ship rock formation off to the left
