Trip to Crater Lake National Park (Oregon)--Summer 2002
Crater Lake is a volcanic caldera, created when ancient Mount
Mazama “blew its top” about 7000 years ago.
The water in the lake comes only from snow melt; there are no springs that feed it, and no outlet.
The water is among the bluest to be seen anywhere. These pictures do scant justice to the incredible beauty of this
national park. This link should take you to the National Park Service Crater Lake website, where more information can be found.
