In Oregon, our first big stop was at a place that I'm happy to say has already been protected for more than a century: Crater Lake National Park. The blue water looked as amazing as when gold prospectors stumbled upon it in 1853. It's the deepest lake in the U.S., with incredibly clear water.
Everyone has a deep connection to a special place in nature. It may be a public park or trail, a stream, a bit of green in their backyard, or a wilderness area high up in the mountains.
