Bike Ride Trip around the rim of Crater Lake September 27, 28 2002. Weather
was "epic". The next day, Sept 29th. It rained! see pic rt)
How lucky was this?? Drove up from Medford Friday. Stopped by to see some
features along the Rogue River where the river goes underground in a lava
tube. Quite cool. Camped at
Mazama Campground in
the Crater Lake National Park. Got chilly, below freezing. The ride was cool,
and quite windy early on. Felt like getting blown off the bike several times.
Many riders, I was surprised but shouldn't have been.
The ride is 33 miles around the lake with over 3800 foot elevation gains
according to National Park Service as they have a
page dedicated to
bike riding around the rim. For a map of the park,
Here's to the acquaintances from Bend and Sisters, The recumbent Bike crew; I
enjoyed your company! Thanks for the "spin" on the recumbent trike too! As for
the Photo gallery, there are over 170 photos!
I went nuts, how many places are as beautiful as Crater Lake? Not too many.
