Come gather 'round for today's little earth science lesson about why someone who lives in Oregon should have volcano insurance...
Did you know that Oregon rocks?
It really rocked like a
gajillion 7700 years ago when a volcano erupted and created this: Crater Lake
Yep, this is where I went this past Sunday....Volcano crater huntin'. A.K.A Snowshoeing. Unfortunately, no cocktails were served on this hunt.
When we first arrived there were a few "The Shining" flashbacks in my head. The snow was 12-14 ft high!
So while I tried to stop repeating "red-rum" in my head, I put on my snowshoes and off we went into the wilds of Oregon.
But, my fears were quickly calmed because there was Ranger Mike to safely guide us on our two mile trek through the snow:
|Ranger Mike showed us pictures of...birds.|
By the way, Ranger Mike revealed to me that he was single and looking, so ladies...look no further than the wilds of Oregon.
|Up lots of hills!|
Even at 7000+ feet up, the altitude didn't really bother me and could easily keep up. There's NO WAY I could have done that when I was 256 lbs.
|Oh look! I found the crater!|
What's wrong with this picture of my feet in those sexy snowshoes?
Yep, I took this photo AFTER we snowshoed for over TWO hours.My literacy skills amaze me sometimes.
