I compared Crater Lake to Lake Tahoe.
Both are very beautiful. Lake Tahoe has a gazillion things to do; Crater Lake has one. Haven't been to Yellowstone. been to Yosemite - beats Crater Lake hands down; Been to Moab, beats Crater Lake hands down; been to Bend, been to Oregon Coast, been to Victoria Island, been to Ashland, etc, etc.
(I knew there was access down what seemed like a steep gravel road on the North side but hardly anybody in their right mind uses it!)
I wanted to see Crater Lake, been there done that (not much more you can say for it).
