You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

Afternoon Drive


Wednesday, Nov 15, 2006 from Roseburg, Oregon

Today I headed out to Crater Lake, about a drive of 85 miles from Roseburg. And wow am I lucky. I haven’t seen weather like this in about 10 days or more. The sun was out, blue sky, only a few clouds, it was perfect. So thank goodness I took this drive today and not yesterday. As for the rest of the week it looks like more rain. It was a perfect little break in the storm.

I started by checking out the only place (or so I hear) in the United States where two rivers collide head to head. Then I climbed around 5,000 feet on my way to Crater Lake. What I loved is going from no snow on the ground to probably 18 inches of it at the top where you could also see a few mountain peeks, including the amazing peek of Thielsen Mountain that were covered. The sun was melting the snow slowly and the trees were dripping with drops of water.

However, things went from perfect to aggravated fast. Crater Lake was closed! Grrr. Very frustrating. I don’t know when I’ll be out here again and it was the PERFECT day to see it. It couldn’t have been a better day to see the lake, so yeah, pretty frustrating. Thankfully there is a lot of other stuff out that way.

I spent spent some time checking out Diamond Lake, some photos of the Thielsen peak, a gorgeous waterfall, and the most important thing is some beautiful snow. In my opinion, a photo can’t be perfect unless it has snow in it. Snow pulls everything together and of course it makes me feel at home. Oh, I love snow. It was a great afternoon and nice to spend some time to myself and gather up all my thoughts again, or as many as I could. It’s good to be traveling!
