July 2000 - Crater Lake Trip


The cliffs on the edge of the caldera rise up to two thousand feet over the waterline.  The bottom of the lake is almost two thousand feet below that!  Crater Lake is supposed to be the deepest lake in North America.  The depth of the water combined with the cold and high purity causes the water to appear crystal clear and the richest shades of blue.  You can see different layers in the cliff, showing how the volcano built itself up in many stages.
