Happy 119th anniversary to Crater Lake National Park located in Oregon!
About 7,700 years ago, Mount Mazama erupted creating the deepest lake in the United States and the 9th deepest in the world. With a depth of 1,943 feet, Crater Lake is the one of the most beautiful lakes you will ever see. The water’s intense blue color is an indication of its great depth and purity. Surrounded by cliffs, the lake is fed entirely by rain and snow. Scientists consider Crater Lake to be the cleanest and clearest large body of water in the world.
Enjoy a few photos from our visit there last October. As you will see, it was a bit hazy from fires in the area. But, the smoke and haze can’t hide this national park’s beauty!
If you’re in the area, I highly recommend checking out this national park as it is one of my favorites!
