Crater Lake in Oregon or Glacier National Park?

This is a question for those of you who have been to both places:

If you had a week in early September to visit only 1 of them, which would you choose, all things considered?

I went to Glacier a few years ago for 8 days around mid-September and had a great time. There were very few crowds and the weather was great. Took a lot of short hikes, but it was kind of scary because there was a grizzly attack the week before we went on one of the same trails we hiked. If you are on the forum, I'm sure you've read about bear spray...we got a free can from our hotel before we entered the park and another free one from a KOA we stayed at... There is a a great little bakery...Polsan or something like that...in the middle of nowhere, they use a huge generator...wonderful food , we ended up going back again for some more sandwiches and cookies. I'm sure the forum can tell you more. I'm heading to the Oregon coast and CNP the end of Sept., can't wait, the pictures look wonderful...love mountains and oceans so will see some of both. When you decide to visit CNP and the coast, this forum is a huge help.
