Crater Lake (July 23-24)

On our way from Klamath in the RV we stopped in Crescent City to have one of the rear inside duals on the RV checked. I had not been able to keep it aired up, so had them pull it to check it. Loose valve, no charge. Nice folks.

We had to come pretty far inland from our coastal trip to see Crater Lake, but it was on my “bucket list” of places the had to be seen. Had no reservations anywhere, so took a chance and pulled into the Crater Lake RV Park at Prospect, OR early afternoon. Meant to just stay one night and move on closer to the lake, but decided to just stay here two nights and take the car into the lake the next day. Good decision. It was about 35 miles to Crater Lake, then another 33 around the lake. We spent a good part of the day on this very scenic drive up, around and back, and then, back in Prospect, went to the historical Prospect Hotel for dinner to celebrate my birthday. So we were a day late, it was still okay. The old hotel dining room was a pleasant surprise. Excellent food in a town that is hardly even on the map.
