We passed along Shasta Lake which is a reservoir -but it was also very low...just like Lake Powell in Arizona and Lake Mead in Utah - we certainly have a serious water condition here in the west coast!
Very concerning! So many areas are already rationing...and must! We hear that we are going into the 7th year of not enough waterfall!

...Welcome "Back" to Oregon!
.....and I am keeping an eye & enjoying the drive! I might get something for us to eat or drink...and take pictures along the way! Just love sitting so high and enjoying the sights along the way!
Driving over the border and into Klamath Falls which is a town on the river.
We were only 2 hours from Bend now...but because we had been on the road again for several hours we decided to turn off onto Hwy 138 and go see Diamond Lake which is very close to Crater Lake. We were so' close and it was getting late again...so we decided to go see these lakes.
As we drove into a campground the camp host got into his golf cart and lead us to our parking spot...how cute is that!
Follow the Leader......!

We stopped at a view point and what did we see?????
Crater Lake - The deepest Lake in America!
Oh my the blue water!
You'll have to click on the link to read about Crater Lake...we always thought the whole top blew off but actually the Park Ranger told us that the lava ran out the side and eventually the whole volcano imploded...(fell into itself...leaving this big hole!) Interesting!
Look at this dead tree perched on the rock..quite a neat picture!
Tomorrow we drive to Bend.....
Today....June 9th 2015......
It's been 6.5 months!
