On a cloudy mid-summer day, I drove by Government Camp on Mt. Hood. Skyline Road was reached in a few more miles.
From there it was a several miles south to Little Crater Campground on the edge of a very large sub-alpine meadow.
In a short distance I reached the Lake. It’s100 feet wide, 45 feet deep and crystal blue to its very bottom where an artesian spring feeds the lake. Without sunshine the blue of the lake was much more demure than usual. As all photographers know, good light makes all the difference.
I soaked in the beauty for awhile before heading back to the trailhead. Every time I visit it feels like there is a little magic to be found.
