Wow...that is one big ol' herkin' lake

The family just got back from a trip to Sunriver, with a day trip to Crater Lake. It was the first ever view of the lake for the missus and the first for me in almost three decades -- the kids were interested, but declined to get out into the cold wind after about the 15th pullout.

We lucked out and arrived on the first day they opened the east rim drive, so we got these photos (combined into one shot in Photoshop) from the Cloudcap Overlook.

I know it's a cliché, but the photos don't do it justice, particularly the size of the crater.

What a treasure.
