Crater Lake

On our way out of Oregon we took a detour to Crater Lake. It was formed from a volcanic eruption a long time ago and Wizard Island (which you can see in the pictures) has been formed over the years by lava. It is actually a mini-volcano...

The lake itself is fed only by snow and rain and it has no river run-offs. It's sooooo blue and eerily quiet when you're up there. It's at or a bit higher than the cloud line, at least this day, and there were thunder storms going on around us. Very cool to watch from a higher perspective. A must see when in Oregon.
