The Old Man of Crater Lake

POST #    2321

When people talk about the Old Man at Crater Lake National Park in Oregon, they aren't talking about some old guy wandering around the park with a cane. The Old Man is actually driftwood that has been floating around the lake since 1896. When we were there in August, the Old Man was actually grounded, but when the water on the lake is choppy or there's a lot of wind, the Old Man is known to move all around the lake.

And yes, the water really is that blue.

Hi- I found this post via Google. Fantastic pictures of The Old Man! How did you get so close? I heard they have tours, but I wasn't sure if private parties could get boats down there.

Again, wonderful pictures-- best of The Old Man the I've found. Kudos also on your blog: such a wide-range of topics and great pictures!
