Day 4

We got up too early and headed off to Crater Lake. The entire rim drive was open, and we started around to the West, stopping at the lodge, then continuing to the Pumice Desert and then to the Cleetwood Cove trailhead for lunch.

We descended to the lake where I went swimming! There were also a bunch of kids swimming in their underwear. They were shivering fiercely after they got out so I let them use my towel. (I heard the water is really nice if you get there when its 100 degrees out from a forest fire watcher at Lava Beds.) We ascended, considered the Mt. Scott trail, but switched to the Garfield Peak trail so Laura's legs wouldn't get killed. The peak gave us an excellent view of the lake and the surrounding terrain.

We returned to Mt. Shasta City and ate at a lovely Mexican restaurant. Unfortunately there was a scary TV show featuring a bunch of women with stripper names and a guy wearing a giant clock around his neck. Then we relaxed in the hot tub and slept.
