Crater Lake National Park

CraterLake (3)Crater Lake was formed when the volcano Mount Mazama collapsed ~7,700 years ago, leaving behind a natural “bowl” that water couldn’t escape from.  Over the years, the water from rain and snow collected until a lake that’s 2,148 feet deep formed.

Unfortunately for us, the lake and surrounding ridge were buried in several feet of snow for our visit, so we were only able to experience the park via the film at the Visitor’s Center.  We’ll have to return another time! 

We’re now back home near Seattle, where we hope to see the three nearby park’s before taking the summer off.
