Circumnavigation of Crater Lake

This past February Carrie and I embarked on an attempt to circumnavigate Crater Lake on cross country skiis. We are both more or less beginners on this form of travel which made for lots of excitement and long travel days. Based on our time constraints and the unknown ahead we chose to not make the entire circumnavigation and instead travel out and back. We went on a long ski the second day instead of continuing around the lake. The weather was mostly beautiful with decent snow and sunny winter days. The nights were cold and the trip certainly turned out to be an adventure. We were very worn out after the trip. In all we probably traveled around 30 miles. The circumnavigation itself is about 33 miles.
