The year was 1975….. Charles McCullar, a young man from Virginia, was traveling cross country to visit a friend in Eugene Oregon. Charles, a hobbyist photographer, spent his free time hiking and focusing on his craft. During his stay in Oregon, he planned a two-day hiking trip to Crater Lake National Park to photograph the parks winter scenes. Reports claim Charles was ill prepared for the conditions he met on his arrival at the park. This did not deter Charles as he planned a two-day photography session. Once finished, Charles planned to return to his friend’s house before heading back home. When Charles never returned, the search began. In the year following his disappearance, a startling discovery was made by backcountry hikers deep in a desolate section of the park that creates more questions than answers. Join us as we discuss what Charles experienced in the park and the mystery surrounding what park rangers uncovered.
