Today we’ll complete our visit to Crater Lake; once again with too many photos. In this one, I like the turquoise of the water in the shallows, going blue as the depth increases. Almost like peering into someone’s eyes – you will see what they let you see for the most part. Sometimes, the depths rise up and out and you will get glimmers of the “more” that lies within.
The blue of the water, the serenity of its surface where there are thin layers of ice but no ripples to distort the reflections. These are a couple of the reasons my camera continued to click, click, click. They offer a boat ride on the lake during the season, which I would love to do. But it is a long, steep decline to get to the boat dock – which means it is a long, steep incline to come back. Perhaps I’ll train this winter, to walk and build up strength and endurance. Perhaps. I’m good at making big plans, building good intentions. I lack on the follow-through end.
For me, breathtaking. There are many things that consistently make my jaw drop – the beauties of nature that result from violent occurrences. The beauties made by man before the advent of large machinery to heft, lift and carry incredibly heavy pieces up, up, to the top of structures like the pyramids, the Mayan structures, the Great Wall and much much more.
The path leading down to another vantage point. The vantage point from which we were able to view the Phantom Ship. Down low in a shaded area, hidden away from the view of those walking on the sidewalks above. In an area that has a cave-like feel. So quiet. Drowning in the beauty surrounding us.
