wine by the color

Given the Sandman's reaction to yesterday's post, I know he'll enjoy this one. I visited Crater Lake yesterday, which was formed by the eruption of Mount Mazama some 7,000 years ago. It is the deepest lake in the U.S. And it is absolutely breathtaking. Pictures can't begin to capture how blue the water is.

It is also, to what I'm sure will be the continued dismay of sweltering Jersey-ites, a very comfortable climate. I considered posting a photo with snow on the ground, but thought that might be too much. It was about 60 yesterday. The temperature falls below 40 each evening.

Which should make this afternoon interesting - I'm white-water rafting on the Deschutes River. I stuck my hand in that water yesterday and it is freezing. I'm curious as to how it will feel when my entire body is in it.
