Drove inland via Willow Creek (home of Big Foot), Weaverville, Redding, Dunsmuir (home of the best water on earth), to overnight stop at Klamath Falls over the state border in Oregon. Saw lots of different landscapes again- forested mountains with river valleys, treeless plateaus of agricultural crops, lakes & dams.
Sunday 7th Sep.
Crater Lake today- spectacular! It's a dormant volcano that erupted& left a crater which fills with water from rain & snow only. The colour is amazing & plenty of evidence of volcanic history in surrounding landscape.
The Pinnacles (lava towers).
Walked down to the edge of the lake via the steep Cleetwood Cove Trail (20 min down, 30 min up 3km return). Pretty tough climb!
Callum joined others jumping off the rocks for a cool swim.
Drove back toward the coast to Reedsport for the night, again driving through a variety of landscapes.
