Even in early June, this National Park still had a lot of snow and ice on the ground. In fact, all of the hiking trails were closed during our visit along with much of the Rim Road.

Crater Lake was formed when a volcanic basin filled with snowmelt and rain to create the USA’s deepest lake at 1949 feet. The exceptional clarity of the water creates a stunningly deep blue lake that must be seen to be believed.

Check out that reflection.

Wizard Island, a volcanic cinder cone, pokes dramatically out of the lake.

I hope you get to make the visit to this beautiful and remote National Park in Oregon. rk
