In other news, Crater Lake exceeded expectations, as nature is oft to do. I'd ramble on about how beautiful it was, but 1) I have to pack, and 2) my photos are somewhat more substantial than me sitting here and saying "It was- it was, like, so blue. Like it out-blued blue! And it was deep, and a crater, and... And stuff. And there were these rocks-" and so on. None of that.
We're driving down to the Oregon Vortex today, a place and experience which calls itself :The Famous Circular Area with its Unique Phenomena" and has been forever branded into my childhood. It's hard to explain, really, save that it's less a vortex of mystery and more a vortex of pure, concentratd American kitsch. I cannot wait. After that we're making our way down to the Redwoods to play Rebel Alliance on the metaphorical moon of Endor, which I'd elaborate on, but I must pack up my computer for now.
