Aesop's Fables at 1

December 17, 2017 1:00pm–1:30pm

For the past six years, Little Linkville has dazzled and amazed young audiences with original works such as Plants VS. Zombees, App of Doom, and Super John and retellings like Bunnicula, 3 Billy Goats Gruff, and Little Bunny Foo Foo. This year the Little Linkville Players turn their attention to the timeless world of Aesop’s Fables.

Using five tales from the ancient storyteller and dispenser of wisdom, the group puts together three magical and creative shows that prove that morals about patience and friendship never go out of style – even when the story material is over two thousand years old. See these classic tales in a fun and unique way that only Little Linkville can provide: The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse, The Dog and His Reflection, The Boy with a Fistful of Nuts, The Bundle of Sticks, The Crow and the Pitcher.

Tickets are $2 per person and are available for purchase at Periwinkle Home located at 831 Main Street, Klamath Falls.  Call them at 541-205-4395 for information and to check seat availability.

Ranger-Led Snowshoe Walks

December 17, 2017 1:00pm–3:00pm

Crater Lake National Park is pleased to announce that our popular ranger-guided snowshoe walks will start on Friday, November 24 and will be offered every Saturday and Sunday (and on most holidays) through April 29, 2018.  Walks will also be offered daily from December 16 through January 1.

Crater Lake is one of the snowiest inhabited places in America, receiving an average of 43 feet of snow per year.  Ranger-led snowshoe walks are a fun way to explore this winter wonderland while learning how plants, animals, and people survive the long winter.

The walks start at 1:00 pm, last two hours, and cover 1-2 miles of moderate-to-strenuous terrain.  They don’t follow a trail—the hike is an off-trail exploration through the forests and meadows along the rim of Crater Lake.

No previous snowshoeing experience is necessary.  Snowshoes are provided free of charge, and there is no cost for the tour (apart from the park entrance fee of $10 per car).   Participants should be at least 8 years old and come prepared with warm clothing and water-resistant footwear.

Space on each tour is limited, and advance reservations are required.  For more information and to sign up, call the park’s visitor center at 541-594-3100.  The visitor center is open daily from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm except on December 25.  Organized groups (such as scout troops, hiking clubs, and church groups) may be able to arrange for a separate tour. 

Crater Lake National Park is open year-round, 24 hours a day.  The park’s north entrance and Rim Drive are closed to cars in the winter, but the west and south entrances are plowed daily and are open to automobiles throughout the year.  There is no winter lodging in the park, however the Rim Village Café & Gift Shop is open daily except on November 23 and December 25.  Spectacular views of Crater Lake can be enjoyed at Rim Village during periods of clear weather.
