Crater Lake National Park, in southwestern Oregon, features one of the bluest and deepest lakes in the world, and is a true gem of a national park. The “crater” is all that remains of Mount Mazama, an ancient volcano which erupted some 7,000 years ago. Rim Drive allows visitors access to many overlooks and provides different perspectives of the lake and its environs.
Here are some photos taken from various observation points along Rim Drive.
This view takes in Wizard Island, the result of an eruption within the crater, after Mount Mazama blew its top off.
