I visited Crater Lake a couple of years ago to engage in hiking and photography. One thing that surprised me was that a visitor to the park could enjoy some majestic scenery without the need to hike.

All of my photos included in this post were taken from along Rim Road. Rim Road is 33-mile loop road that follows the caldera rim with several parking lots/overlook points, and also many “unofficial” pullouts along the route. So even if a park visitor has no interest in hiking or may have physical limitations there is no reason not to take in the majestic views from Rim Road. Enjoy, Joe.
