Crater Lake - Oregon
This post is almost all visual and video. But let's take a moment to discuss Crater Lake.
Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States at 1949 ft. at its deepest point. The 4000 ft. Volcano Caldera was formed 7700 years ago from the collapse of Mt. Mazama. Crater Lake has no streams flowing into or out of it. All water that enters the lake is eventually lost from evaporation or subsurface seepage. The lake's water commonly has a striking blue hue, and the lake is refilled entirely from direct precipitation in the form of snow and rain.
We were able to see the lake from the ground and the air. Both are absolutely stunning.
