Driving the Crater

The best pictures are often made in bad weather.

It was a stormy day at Crater Lake National Park in Oregon and we were driving the 33 mile road that runs along the rim of the caldera. The landscape is nothing less than stunning which definitely poses a challenge to keeping your eyes on the road!  Thankfully, there are places where you can hike up and take in the breathtaking views of the lake and the road that snakes around it. I was lucky to catch the shafts of sunlight filtering through the low clouds as I took this shot.
