There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes.
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

-Lord Byron

Cleetwood Cove

There is only one route you can take to the shores of Crater Lake, the Cleetwood Cove trail. Only one mile in length, but with an 11% downgrade, don't let the shortness of the hike fool you, it'll get you catching your breath.
During the summer months, you can catch a boat here to Wizard Island, but I had arrived a week too late for this excursion. What I traded for though was a much less crowded area and a more bonding presence with Nature.

The water is so blue and clear, the air a refreshing breath of peace.
I find a little alcove, and restfully have a bit of lunch to the harmony of waves crashing against the volcanic rocks.
