~ Miller Lake ~ A Gem of the Cascades ~


During my fishing vacation, my sister and brother-in-law took me on a day trip to Miller Lake, about an hour from our campground.


Along the way we stopped to take pictures of Mt. Thielsen, an extinct shield volcano, elevation 9,183 feet (2799 meters), not far from Crater Lake. 


A natural freshwater lake with a maximum depth of 145 feet (40mm), the lovely shades of the water was the main reason my sister wanted me to see it. Gorgeous colors!


Stocked with Rainbow, Kokanee and Brown trout, people fished from shore when we visited. The sandy beach and clear water invite visitors to swim, kayak, canoe and paddle board. No motors are allowed which keeps the lake waters quiet and peaceful.


If this canoe were mine, I would have taken Jello out to explore!


Instead, we wandered along the shoreline, then took a short walk on a nearby trail. Such a pretty place – worth visiting again!


Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate uncharted waters.🐾
