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!
