Final preparations before my mom and I hit the road this morning...
It was a real blessing to be able to get a room at the Crater Lake Lodge for all three nights of our stay there, due to a pair of last-minute cancellations. The more grateful, once I started reading about the major mosquito infestations in the rooms at the cabins there. And the lodge location is so much more gorgeous too.
It was sweet of a friend of my mom who grew up in northern California to loan us a bunch of books and information, and give us advice which made us change our lodging location for the last night (apparently there's as many inmates as locals in Crescent City, but that is hardly advertised!)
Can't forget how nice it was to visit my brother and sister-in-law and their kids from Friday evening to Saturday afternoon. I got to give Eliana her gift and be there right on her sixth birthday! =D
