Hi, friends! I hope you're ready for 7 days of Oregon pride. My enthusiasm for this state and it's beauty is a little obnoxious, I know, but I think it's deserved. Having not been able to pick out Oregon on a map before moving here (which probably says a lot more about my attention span in the sixth grade than anything else), I've now made it my mission to let people in on the secret that this part of the country is pretty dang awesome. I hope you enjoy and find more motivation to come visit and experience it for yourself!
Oh, and if you haven't read my Friday post with a little intro to the series, you should go read it now! :)
First up is Crater Lake. Which is one of the more insane places I've ever seen with my two eyeballs. I'm going to lift a little info from Wikipedia for you:
"Crater Lake is a caldera lake in the western United States, located in south-central Oregon. It is the main feature of Crater Lake National Park and is famous for its deep blue color and water clarity. The lake partly fills a nearly 2,148-foot (655 m)-deep caldera that was formed around 7,700 (± 150) years ago by the collapse of the volcano Mount Mazama. There are no rivers flowing into or out of the lake; the evaporation is compensated for by rain and snowfall at a rate such that the total amount of water is replaced every 250 years. With a depth of 1,943 feet (592 m), the lake is the deepest in the United States, and the seventh or ninth deepest in the world, depending on whether average or maximum depth is measured."
Here are some photos from Beau and I's trip to Crater lake this past summer, just to further prove how ri-donk-ulous the place is.
Right? Gorgeous. I should also mention that Beau had the grand idea of biking the 30-some miles around the rim. It was one of the more difficult things the White Pony (my bike) and I have gone through together, but it was an experience I'll never forget.
I hope you enjoy the Crater Lake print, now available in the shop! This print, along with all of the other 7 Wonders prints to be released this week, will be 10% off until February 8. Enjoy! :)
Love & Respect,
P.S. If you're interested in purchasing ALL of the 7 Wonders prints, I'd wait until next Monday. I'll be offering the bundle of 7 at a bigger discount! :)
