Newberry Crater

Took a few days trip camping and hiking out to Newberry Crater, aka Newberry Caldera, aka Newberry Volcanic National Monument, aka Newberry National Volcanic Monument, aka Newberry Volcano, which contains Paulina and East Lakes, as well as the “Big Obsidian Flow”, all in lovely central Oregon. Here’s some pics.

Warm springs on the north shore of Paulina Lake. You can sit in them. Most were rather lukewarm, but a couple were nice and toasty.
