Crater Lake National Park

Mount Mazama, a peak formed by a succession of overlapping volcanoes, had a cataclysmic eruption 7,700 years ago.  Spewing rocks and ash up nearly 30 miles into the air, the sheer force and volume of the magma caused the 12,000 foot peak to collapse into the empty magma chamber.  As it continued to erupt, it continued to collapse, leaving in its place a five-mile wide, 4,000 feet deep depression, known as a caldera.  As time moved on, more eruptions sealed the caldera and rain and water from the melting snows began to fill the hole and give us what we know today as Crater Lake – the deepest lake in the United States.

Crater Lake – here we come!

I’ve lived in Oregon for more than 25 years and I’ve never seen Crater Lake.  7,700 years ago, the violent eruption of Mt. Mazama  caused it to collapse into a deep pit.  As time marched on, the pit filled with rain and snow and has now become the deepest lake in the USA (nearly 2,000 feet deep) –  with the bluest, purest water I hear!

I don’t have any photos yet, but just to tease you into coming back, here is one from USGS.GOV

Crater Lake National monument is located in South Central Oregon – and in just a few days, we’re off to explore the area! Come back next week for pictures – lots of pictures – and a personal account of the experience!

See you next week!
