DreamWorks Pictures' "War Horse," director Steven Spielberg's epic adventure, is a tale of loyalty, hope and tenacity set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War. "War Horse" begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets--British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter--before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man's Land. The First World War is experienced through the journey of this horse--an odyssey of joy and sorrow, passionate friendship and high adventure. "War Horse" is one of the great stories of friendship and war-- a successful book, it was turned into a hugely successful international theatrical hit that is arriving on Broadway next year. It now comes to screen in an epic adaptation by one of the great directors in film history.  

Ranger-Led Snowshoe Walks

January 28, 2018 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. 

Almost, Maine

January 28, 2018 2:00pm–4:00pm

On a cold, clear moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not what it seems in the remote town of Almost, Maine. As the Northern Lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the town’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised, hearts are broken…but the bruises heal and the hearts mend – almost – in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

An award-winning production by John Cariani comprising of several short plays that explore love and loss, the production premiered at the Portland Stage Company in Portland, Maine in 2004 where it broke box office records and garnered critical acclaim.

Popular in professional and nonprofessional theater companies worldwide, the material is thought-provoking and very human. The New York Times noted, “This is a beautifully structured play, with nifty surprise endings (most but not all of them happy) and passing references to characters from other vignettes, which slyly tell us more about them.”

Tickets can be purchased at Perwinkle Home located at 831 Main Street, Klamath Falls
