Our first stop on our way east is Crater Lake. We explored the rim, hiked to the summit of the park's highest mountain, and camped below a nearby volcano.
It's still cloudy, so we cannot see any of these volcanoes. We hiked down to Spirit Lake below Mount Saint Helens, then hopped over to Mount Rainier and hiked up to the glaciers on Alpine Trail.
We stayed with Andy's friends last night in Eugene, Oregon. The clouds rolled in, but we were not deterred from visiting Mount Saint Helens today.
Crater Lake so impressed us we decided to spend another day here. We continued touring the rim and hiked down to the water to explore the lake by boat with a quick stopover on Wizard Island.
We toured northeast New Mexico today, climbing up Capulin Volcano, exploring Cimarron Canyon and the Enchanted Circle. We ended our day camping in a narrow canyon on the Santa Clara Pueblo Reservation.
