"It won’t ever get old, not in my soul, not in my spirit, keep it alive.

We’ll go down this road ‘til it turns from color to black and white

Or do you not think so far ahead?

Crater Lake,a caldera, is also the deepest lake in the US. It was created when the then 12,000 ft. volcano, Mt Mazamo literally blew it’s top off in a eruption (is there any other kind?) 7700 years ago. The ash and volcanic rock filled the remnant crater, which was subsequently filled with rain water and snow, resulting in this stunning geological masterpiece. #oregon #craterlake #leftcoast #volcano #nofilter (at crater lake)

My longtime friend, Shane (pictured), and I usually spend a week or two, each summer, camping and hiking. This year, we’re in the beautiful Cascade Mountains of Oregon. This pic was taken at the Lewis Glacier on The “South Sister” mountain, near its summit. The South Sister is an extinct volcano, and is one of the “Three Sisters,” of Oregon, each measuring in at a height of 10,000 ft. The hike to the summit is 6 Miles each way, and takes anywhere from 7-10 hours. Although it was the steepest, most grueling hike I’ve ever done, it was also the most beautiful and the most rewarding. A severe lightning and thunderstorm started to roll in, so we decided to play it safe and not continue on to the summit. But, we made it to about 9,000 ft elevation of the 10,375 (or so) ft. We’ll definitely return for the full summit! #southsister #oregon #cascades (at South Sister Mountain)

Loving being back on the Left Coast. Oregon is more beautiful (and sunnier and warmer) than I imagined… #oregon #leftcoast #pch (at Pacific Coast Highway)
