Tour Crater Lake

The valley of the Willamette River in western Oregon is the most densely populated and agriculturally productive region of the state, and is home to eight of the ten most populous cities. Oregon's largest for-profit private employer is Intel, located in the Silicon Forest area on Portland's west side.
Oregon enjoys a diverse landscape including a scenic and windswept Pacific coastline, the volcanoes of a rugged and glaciated Cascade Mountain Range, dense evergreen forests, and high desert across much of the eastern portion of the state.
The towering Douglas firs and redwoods along the rainy Western Oregon coast provide a dramatic contrast with the lower density and fire prone pine tree and juniper forests covering portions of the Eastern half of the state. The eastern portion of the state also includes semi-arid scrublands, prairies, deserts, and meadows. These drier areas stretch east from Central Oregon.
Mount Hood is the highest point in the state at 11,249 feet. Crater Lake National Park is the only national park in Oregon.
Pacific Crest Trail
U.S. National Scenic Trail
2,650-mile long distance hiking and equestrian trail that stretches from the Mexican to Canadian borders, passes through the park. This long-distance hiking and equestrian trail closely aligned with the highest portion of the Sierra Nevada and Cascade mountain ranges east of the U.S. Pacific coast.

Colorado 14er Club
Big Mountain High Adventure
The Colorado Rockies have 54 mountain peaks of over 14,000 foot elevation. As the trail gets steeper, the landscape changes from thick forests to barren moonscape. Frequently you can experience all four seasons in a single day's climb. And your reward is a wide variety of the best mountain top views in the USA.
But Climbing any mountain that extends over 14,000 feet above sea level is not easy. Your legs ache and your lungs scream for air. It is the ultimate test of physical endurance and mental stamina.
