Paulina Prairie
Pictures from the cemetery, overlooking the prairie and the area around the cemetery.

It was interesting in less than 5 miles
we went from being snowed upon at the lake to a nice day.
We used the bench at the cemetery to have our lunch.

Paulina Lake Day Trip

We took a drive up to Newberry Crater.
At the overlook, we saw the next storm moving in to the Cascades mountains,
but could see Mt. Bachelor.

Snow at the lookout.

Paulina Lake and Paulina Peak Lookout

It was amazing to see how much snow and ice was still in and around the lake.

The road was only open to Paulina Lake at the closest point -
where the stream and Paulina Lake connect.
It was quite beautiful to see the lake with the snow and ice still in it.
