My best friend and I drove 5 hours one-way out of our way just to see Crater Lake while we were visiting the Pacific Northwest. It was definitely worth the drive. This place is absolutely beautiful. The scenery is stunning and will leave you in awe of nature. We did one of the short hikes up to a lookout point and had even higher views of the surrounding countryside. The sunset here was picturesque and the weather quite cool. The water is a deep blue. The cliffs drop straight down, so be careful not to get too close to the edge. There were some public bathrooms available, but they were disgusting and had no electricity, so at night you need to bring a flashlight. Bring a jacket with you if visiting this place or else the chill will eventually get to you even in the summer.
