Irresponsible Dad Leads Successful Camping Trip To Crater Lake

Wizard Island at sunset: The water at Crater Lake appears as blue as the photo owing to its exceptional clarity -- the lake is fed by rain and snow melt.

We took the kids camping and everybody survived, although some more than others. LSS came down with a head cold and the kids developed various ailments as a result.

Still, everybody felt they had witnessed a truly spectacular natural environment.

The air was cool and dry (no bugs!) at a smug 6,000 feet of elevation.

We had such a great time we did the irresponsible thing and decided to let the kids self-regulate their s'more intake. One kid developed a stomach ailment which probably was a result, but, hey, only one way to know your limits.

The big ticket item for us was the boat ride around the lake with a stop to hike Wizard Island.

A great weekend with friends. Can't wait to do it again.
