|Garfield Peak above the Crater Lake Lodge|
This winter, while our east coast brethren have been pummeled by arctic blast after arctic blast, the west coast has been high and dry (the first half of winter) and warm and wet (the second half). Consequently, not much terrain in southern Oregon has been skiable. Crater Lake is one of the few exceptions. Due to its relatively high elevation and easy access, Garfield Peak (and the greater Crater Lake vicinity) has become a familiar place to me this winter.
Here are a few photos from my tour last Saturday:
