“A certain blue enters your soul.”
Crater Lake was formed 7,700 years ago when a massive volcanic eruption left a deep basin where a mountain peak once stood. Centuries of rain and snow filled the basin forming a deep blue lake whose waters are of unmatched color and clarity. It’s the deepest lake in the United States.
