Crater Lake

One of the parks I've dreamed of visiting for years is Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. THe main feature of the park is a dormant volcano that created a caldera lake, the deepest lake in the USA. The lake features the impressive Wizard Island, a cinder cone from the volcano. This summer on my epic adventure roadtrip I knew I had to get it off my national park checklist. Unfortunately, even in June much of the park was still snowed in. I could not take a boat to Wizard Island as I had always dreamed, but I did get to hike down in to the caldera to the water. The natural startling blue color of the lake made for excellent photographic foder.
