summer wanderings 7

Okay, okay, I know this is way late.  But I want to finish documenting our summer outings this year.  Our final outing was in August.  We took Aaron, David, and David's friend Xander to Crater Lake.  The last time David was there, he was an infant, so he doesn't really remember too much about it.  ;-)

The Buick decided to act up, and there were forest fires in the area, which made things smokey, so it was an interesting trip.  Nevertheless, we had a fun day.

Guys and their gadgets on the way up, waiting for the car to cool down.
On the wall around the lake.

Some nice person volunteered to take a photo of all of us.

I told you it was smokey.  The longer we stayed, the more obscured the view became.

Ranger Bob gave a lecture on the history of the lake.  Neat scale model in the center.

Even though it was August, there were patches of snow.  Look out!
David did get even.
 Our summer wanderings came to an end, but they were great memory-makers.  I'd love to do it more another summer!  There are lots of things to see here in Oregon.  Lots of quaint little towns.  Lots of amazing scenery.
