Oregon.Crater Lake National Park

In the end of April there was still crazy amount of snow at Crater Lake National Park. It is one of the snowiest places in US. Luckily the rangers at the park organize snow shoe hikes and we decided to participate as well. The hike started at Steel Visitor Center, was completely free and also the snow shoes were provided by the park.

Ranger showed us how to make snow devils - your face must be in the snow (when making snow angel you look to the sky).

Also we learned the tricks of how to wrestle a tree. It was 3 men job as you can see from the photo above.

Lots and lots of snow. According to the ranger we had several meters of snow under our feet.

And finally - the lake. We were really lucky to see it. Just about 10 minutes later the view was completely gone and the lake was hidden behind the clouds.
