Crater Lake National Park is in the Cascade Mountains of southern Oregon and
is known for its namesake Crater Lake, formed by the now-collapsed volcano,
Mount Mazama. Wizard Island is a cinder cone near the western edge of the
lake. The Rim Drive, a road surrounding the lake, offers views of the park’s
volcanic formations. The park’s numerous trails include Sun Notch, with
views of the Phantom Ship, a small island. It was designated as a National
Park in 1902.

and dedication ceremony for the newly created Canine Memorial, located

Burnside Street, formerly Southeast Precinct. 

The memorial project was made possible through countless hours of 
work by local artist Richard A. Moore III, as well as many donors, such
as the Portland Police Historical Society and Adventist Credit Union,
following the tragic shooting death of Portland Police K-9 Mick (above)
in 2014.

Peter Dennis Blandford "Pete" Townshend is 72 years old today.

Pete Townshend had plans to become a graphic artist before his music career
took off after his grandmother bought him his first guitar in 1956.

After having a spiritual awakening and becoming a Baba disciple, he was one
of very few rock stars who opposed the use of psychedelic drugs.
