Month: September 2013

Crater Lake Oregon

“Crater Lake has long attracted the wonder and admiration of people all over the world. Its depth of 1,943 feet (592 meters) makes it the deepest lake in the United States, and the ninth deepest in the world. Its fresh water is some of the clearest found anywhere in the world. The interaction of people with this place is traceable at least as far back as the eruption of Mount Mazama. Founded May 22, 1902, Crater Lake National Park seeks to preserve these natural and cultural resources.”

William and I had traveled to this lake a few years ago during the month of August. It was nice and warm and easy to drive around and see all the different trails and sights. We decided to take another trip so Frank (my Canon) could experience it as well 🙂 It’s September right? Well, a few miles behind our location we noticed patches of snow. Yes, snow. Thank goodness we were dressed for rain, the clothes were also warm enough for the snow, but I really wasn’t expecting it haha! 

As you can see it was absolutely gorgeous! Being only my second time seeing it I really just couldn’t believe it’s beauty. Thank goodness for my wide angle lens! I was able to capture it from end to end! Because of the freak snow storm all the other trails and driving points were closed, that was a real bummer. So sadly, we weren’t there long, just long enough to capture a few shots in the same location. I’m excited to share them with you 🙂

On our way to Crater Lake…

While William and I were driving down to Crater Lake yesterday, we drove past all these beautiful view points. Suddenly William pulls over and says he saw something. Sure enough, there was this beautiful bridge tucked off the highway. This bridge was built in 2012 and it was completely made of wood. The ceder scent was strong in the crisp air.

The Death of a Loved One

I can’t tell you how sorry I am that I haven’t posted or gone to any of your blogs for almost a month. My cat George, my black and white cat you’ve seen so many times before had a rare cancer, and had to be put to rest. I can’t explain the pain I’m going through, apart of me died with him, and life just seemed dull for a while. He lived to be 12 years old and the vet was shocked as to what he found when they did an MRI on him. He said, he should have lived another 10 years. What killed me the most, was that it was unexpected. We took him to a specialist thinking what he had on his leg was a cyst and just needed to be scraped out. After being there the entire day they showed us what he had… it was one of the worst days of my life.

He was my baby boy, he made me smile when no one else could. I miss him jumping next to me when we watched TV and I miss him talking to me when he wanted something or just to be heard. He was one amazing cat, I won’t ever be able to find another like him. He’s finally home with us now. We had him cremated and he returned to me yesterday. They included a mold of his paw, which I wasn’t expecting, and I was finally able to think about posting a blog. I know it’s been a long time, and for that I do apologize.

I will be posting more soon. I’ll be going through all of your recent blogs, but probably won’t go through them all. I hope you all don’t mind. I’m healing slowly and hope to pick up my camera again soon.

but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you…

I loved you so

’twas Heaven here with you.”
