    Crater Lake

    Does anyone know what the temp. at night is at Crater Lake in mid July (07/13).
    The farthest projection I can find is for mid June at 29 degrees at night.

    The rim is at 7,000 ft. so it is not uncommon to have temperatures in the twenties during the summer.

    Same month last year I was visiting Crater Lake and the temps in the afternoon were in the high 80's at the park entrance but it was chilly enough at the lake that I kept my Kilimanjaro zipped up both off and on the bike.

    Me? I wouldn't even consider camping out up there but YMMV!

    PS: Make sure that you gas up before you enter the park. I forgot and had to pay $6.00+ per gallon for regular!

    I am rethinking my intention to ride to Redmond via Crater Lake. I fear it's going to look like a HOG club poker run there, the day before the MOA Rally.

    I've been there before on a bike, and it's a beautiful place. The Lodge is perpetually booked solid, and I expect it will look like a BMW parking lot for lunch that week.

    Crater lake

    This is an Oregon feature that should not be missed if you have never seen it. Usually when I ride in the mountains I focus on the road and the the turns at the expense of appreciating the scenery. The Crater Lake experience is just the opposite.

    The rim road is only 33 miles around. There will be tourists from around the world and bicyclists on the road as well (The best bicycle ride!). There are numerous turn offs with intrepretive signage and the scenery is as good as anyplace in the world. Go there and soak it in. Ride clockwise so that your lane is nearer the lake and take a nice leisurly tour. You can take or leave the lodge and gift shop, but the rim road is a life-list thing to do.
