Crater Lake Century Photography 

For the past decade we have been proud to have Brian Gailey Photography working with the Crater Lake Century.  It is our honor to announce that we are keeping with that tradition – Brian and his team will again be the official photographer for the 2015 Crater Lake Century Bike Ride. Brian roams the course taking action photos of riders at various points along the route.  He then uploads the images to a gallery online where riders can view and order.

This year Brian’s photo gallery allows you to pre-register keeping you informed when photos become available. Even with his busy schedule, Brian has stated the ride photos will be ready by Monday, August 17th. Do not miss out on getting a first look at them by pre-registering.
Subscribe to the announcement by entering your email at: then clicking on “Events.”

Weather at Crater Lake National Park can and does change rapidly.  If you plan a visit any time of the year, it is best to stay current on the weather forecasts and plan for all conditions.  As a good friend of the ride, and former CLNP NPS Ranger, Peter Sweeney once said: “Crater Lake has two seasons, winter and August.”

Winter has settled in CLNP

Its been a few weeks since I have made it up to the lake.  So, I figured I would check out the webcams and see how things are looking today.  A series of winter storms has brought a good base of snow to the park.  It is great to see the snow!

“Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas…”
