The Sunrises At This Lake In Oregon Are Worth Waking Up Early For

If you’re a photographer (or you have a photographer friend), you know that some of the best photographs are taken in the early morning hours. You get up well before the crack of dawn (and drag your friend with you), and set up your tripod to capture that perfect shot…and you’re often rewarded with stunning photos.

You could spend years exploring all the beautiful spots around Oregon to capture a sunrise, but there’s one spot in the state that photographers consider one of the best in the country. If you want an absolutely amazing sunrise photo, head to Crater Lake National Park. Check out these sunrise photos, then set your alarm to capture your own!
