Crater Lake National Park


Crater Lake defines the color blue.  The lake rests inside a caldera formed about 7,700 years ago when a 12,000 foot volcano collapsed during a major eruption. Later eruptions formed Wizard Island, a cinder cone, which you see in the center of the lake. The lake depth is 1,943 feet and is 4-6 miles wide.

A day of amazing natural wonder!
