Day 130 – Starting to Snow

Crater Lake receives an average annual snowfall of 44 feet, and it started TODAY.

We waited for the warmth of the sun to appear before giving up our down sleeping bags and rubbed our hands together to keep our fingers nimble as we packed up and prepared breakfast. 

The skies were mostly clear as we said our last goodbye to the lake, and then the gusts came bringing frozen rain, hail, and a dusting of feathery snow. 

We wrapped up our walk along the rim.

And were soon back in the company of trees. 

We warmed our stomachs with some chicken soup, and hiked along the freshly dusted trail until dusk.

❤ Will
