Photos of Crater Lake National Park,  Oregon



Crater Lake was formed by a volcanic eruption over 7,000 years ago that left a deep basin
where the mountain peak once stood.  The Lake is over 1,900 ft deep and is the deepest lake in the US.
It stands at 6,170 ft above sea level surrounded by mountain peaks as high as 8,900 ft.


I arrived at Crater Lake National Park, Oregon the day after 4 inches of snow fell, in October.
The weather in the days following the snowfall were wet, wild and windy; it was exciting to be there.

I am looking forward with anticipation to returning to this wild, untamed place as soon as more snow falls.

 

 

Updated!
I returned to this area in December 2014 and was lucky enough to get 3 new photos; Mt Thielsen covered in snow, and the icy Rogue River shots
