The most splendid "room " of the caves !

A VERY impressive visit of the Caves !!! Where we were told not only about the formation of it but also its discovery by a hunter and his dog chasing a bear in the last quarter of the 19th century .

At 4.45PM , we were starting the 1 1/2 hour visit of the Oregon Caves with a National Park ranger after parking the rig next to the Chateau , the Historic hotel located in the National Park .

Despite a cloudy weather , we have been overcome by the beauty of this natural wonder ! We left the site around 11.30 AM and took the Route 62 , then Route 199 leading us to the next National Park : the Oregon Caves located at the end of route 46 .

On our way to the Watchman's overlook , we made a few stop along the winding road to get nice views of the Lake .

On our way , we stopped for breakfast at the Annie Creek Restaurant at Mazama Village prior to stop by the Visitor's Center around 9.45 AM . Thanks to a well documented movie projected in that center , we learned all about the Crater Lake ( formation , Indian life and legend , Preservation ) .

Friday June 29th , we left Jo's Motel around 7.30AM under a light rain heading to the Crater Lake National Park .

The day odometer marked 385 miles ! our longest trip since day one . But we spent the night in a sober although confortable cabin , located so close to the next National Park to go to : The Crater Lake .

The Summer lake B&B had no more vacancy so we made it to Fort Klamath where the Jo's Motel had a cabin available .

the sense of loneliness was at some point a little bit uncomfortable and we felt better to leave the place for Summer Lake where we planned to stay for the night .

Finally , we spotted this place at Wagontire . Place that was indeed abandoned but with few nice trees and a bench .

No one in front ...No one behind !And ... no trees too as to stop and picnic .
