Hikers hanging around the crater lake store

Blues - PCT - Jul 31, 2015 - Crater And Diamond Lakes
July 30th
We only had 6 miles this morning to hike to the Mazama village at crater lake so we did that early, arriving around 7:30 and getting a good breakfast. We then walked over to a little store where there were showers, laundry, and supplies. It was actually really fun since there were picnic tables out front and all the hikers we'd been seeing for the last few weeks were pretty much there. After cleaning up and doing laundry I picked up a couple packages that amanda was kind enough to send me including a new ground cloth and pillow.
We then caught a trolly up to the lodge, got lunch and relaxed for a few hours. Since we are meeting my dad tomorrow a little before noon, and we are only 20 miles away we needed to burn some time. A couple other hikers ( red feather and Justin) are going to diamond lake for the night too and are going to catch a ride with us so we hung out with them for the day. It's also been really hot in oregon and we were trying to avoid peak heat. Around 430, we hiked out along the rim of the crater which was spectacular. I wish I had gone down to the water. We ended up camping at a place called grouse hill with a bunch of other hikers and spent a couple hours relaxing and chatting. Over all it was a fun, productive and social day.

July 31st
We slept in later than usual today since we only had 9 miles to go to reach diamond lake. It turned out to be another hot one, though, and even hiking early in the morning was sweaty work. We arrived at the meeting point around 10 and my dad arrived a little while later. A few other hikers that were also going to diamond lake all piled into his car with us and we headed off. I can't believe we all fit with packs and everything. It was a fun day hanging around the lake. My dad got a cabin right on the water and we went for a swim, resupplied and enjoyed the lodge cooking. It was also nice to avoid having to hike in the heat. Knowing that I was happy to be back in oregon, my dad brought a bunch of local treats including blackberry pie, oregon beer, oregon cheese and even a gallon of well water from where I grew up. It was really thoughtful and was nice to enjoy some familiar treats. It's interesting now that on the trail too I'm regularly seeing things I recognize. Everything for the first few months was completely. It's comforting in a way to see things I'm seen before, and there will be plenty more new experiences in Washington. After taking it easy through the afternoon, we went to the lodge for dinner. It was a hot day but it turned into a perfect evening so we ate outside on the deck overlooking the lake. It was another in what seems like an endless series of good days lately. Tomorrow it's back on the trail as we head toward shelter cove, hopefully in weather a little cooler than the last couple days.
