Blogging Buffet: N is for Nature


The theme of my A to Z Challenge posts this year is "Blogging Buffet." In celebration of recently posting my 1000th blog post, I am revisiting posts from the past.  This post originally published on July 25, 2011. 

This is What the Color Blue Is

I've got to thank my dad for the title of this blog post.  When I told him that our summer vacation included Crater Lake, he told me that Crater Lake defines the color blue.  I have to agree. 


Photo:  The intensely-blue Crater Lake

I'm going to skip the thousand words and let the picture speak for itself.  The photo doesn't do it justice, of course, but hopefully it captures a little of the majesty of the lake.  And for those of you experiencing the heat of the summer now, maybe it will provide a cooling effect!

  1. That is a beautiful lake and it looks very inviting! It is supposed to reach 88 here today and the Santa Anas are blowing!

    1. I imagine the water is very cold! The photo was taken in July, and there is still snow on the ground.

  3. That's gorgeous! I'm assuming it's really deep water, too.
