Ribbons of smoke drifted along the rim of Oregon's Crater Lake as the sun blasted its way through, creating a red sunrise. While we were at Crater Lake National Park, I overheard a comment by a park employee that the lake has a different look each day. On this morning it had a subtle sheen that caught the red of the sunrise and the blue of the sky above. Oh, how I wish I could spend more mornings at beautiful Crater Lake.

This historic hotel was built in 1915 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. We stayed here on our recent trip to Oregon's Crater Lake National Park. The views of Crater Lake from the hotel are spectacular, and the food at the restaurant is delicious. The rooms are small with no TV or phone, and the wifi reception was described by a person at the front desk as "good-luck". The location is beyond compare for being able to get out early and catch the sunrise.

There are several Crater Lake boat tours available, and they are the only way to get on the lake unless you're a ranger or a researcher. Wizard Island formed after the collapse of Mount Mazama, while the lake filled with rain and snow melt. The animals on the island made their way across a land bridge, which flooded as the lake rose, leaving them to develop as unique sub-species. The island is accessible by shuttle boat and has a trail leading to the top of the cinder cone, where you look can look into the 90 foot-deep crater.
