    Bike around Crater Lake

    5.0
    I forgot how large Crater Lake was. Wikipedia said it was only 6 miles in diameter, multiply X 3.14 or C = πd and boom its only 18.84 miles around, that's cake, or pie.

That's too bad.Clearwater Falls can be found just off Highway 138, near mile marker 69. Clearwater Fal...
