The Pinnacles-Sand Creek Canyon

Crater Lake National Park, Oregon, 1918

 The Pinnacles-Sand Creek Canyon

The Pinnacles are reached by following the Rim Road from Crater Lake Lodge for about tqn miles, thence three miles down Sand Creek Canyon. Here stand a jumble of giant monoliths crowding the canyon sides, carved by the winds and the rains of centuries into fantastic forms. There are hundreds of these sharp pointed figures, some of them over 100 feet in height, rising like the wraiths of a forest turned to stone. By moonlight their gray ghost-like appearance borders on the uncanny.

Crater Lake Lodge stands near the rim and overlooking the Lake.
