Travel Oregon and ... Wizard Island in summer's rain at Crater Lake

It was raining at Crater Lake, a sight I've seen maybe twice out of the many times I've been up there. Few people seemed to care for it, but I loved it. Colors change depending on the weather, as can be easily seen here, and in the photographs of Mt Thielsen and Phantom Ship. Also, I nearly had the place to myself. (I love to walk in the rain along the ocean on the Oregon coast too.) :-)

Wizard Island and another cone, not visible because its underwater, are evidence of the last eruptions of Mt Mazama. Native American Myth and Legend claim Wizard Island is the head and last vestige of a dying god.
