The snow was everywhere near Crater Lake two weeks ago.

Incredible! It's hard to imagine snow anywhere in the US (except Alaska, lol) right now... down here in GA it's over 100 today!

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

The north entrance to the park just opened the day before our visit!

Snow? Wow! We're about to fry down here. Your picture is gorgeous!

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

It's hot here, too. I feel cooler just remembering Oregon.

Cheryl @ Tales of the Marvelous said...

Wow, those are just creepy trees--I feel like they should come to life and chase people!

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Yes, very creepy.

I love the drift-woody feel of the photo. Is it snow? salt? why is the ground so white?

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Yes, it is snow. Really, really cold there.

I thought it was sand at first! Beautiful.

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Surreal.

Christine Harding said...

It looks like some strange kind of sculpture that's about to come to life... I can see hands and faces there... and they are kind of poised to move... By the way, thanks for commenting on my post.

Wow! This is nice! I like how the color of the trees contrast with the whiteness of the snow.

So pretty! My husband and I have been keeping an eye on the snow levels down there. It sure would be fun to go down there and play in the snow in the middle of summer, but I'm not sure if we'll have the time until August, and who knows what will be left of the snow by then.

Mari said...

Interesting twisty shapes. Great shot!

edgar said...

It's pretty even in winter. Is it prettier in summer?

Esme said...

As much I do not like snow, snow always makes for a pretty photo. Those twists in the tree are interesting.

Susan Lindquist said...

Beautiful ... I wonder how old those skeletal remains are?

Paulita said...

Wow that pictures tells a story that's about 1000 years old. Great shot. Here's Mine

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Beautiful.

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

I have only seen it in the summer. I can't imagine how much snow would be there in winter.

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

We don't even have snow here in winter!

Lisa@ButteryBooks said...

The trees almost look like monsters coming out of the ground. Very cool shot.

Louise said...

I bet you wish could be back there now that you're home soaking up all that heat! Beautiful shot Debbie.

Sim said...

Creepy trees, snow in late June, I feel a sci fi story coming on ...
