Phantom Ship, the right place at the right time

Phantom Ship, Crater Lake

The Phantom ship is one of two islands in Crater Lake. This one apparently reminded people of a ship, especially on misty days.

I don't think you can take a bad photo at Crater Lake, but we reached the area at just the right time. It had been snowing and most the road around the crater had been closed. We did not know, but we drove up to back gate with a couple of cars ahead of us. We didn't understand what was going on, so we waited a few minutes and a National Park Service vehicle drove up and opened the gate. We drove around the crater with untouched snow all around. Absolutely spectacular. Go if you can, whenever you can, but I hope that you can see it with fresh snow. More photos...
