If you're traveling to Crater Lake, OR, your overnight accommodations are limited. Luckily Keith found The Woodsman Country Lodge in Crescent. I think you'll detect a bit of a theme developing here, but the room was large and clean and unlike so many roadside motels--had lots of character(s). Photo essay as follows.
I wish I had a close-up of this woodsman guy. He's like an ancient idol, overlooking the truck-route below. The sign promises free wireless/new log decor. What a perfect melding of new and old.
