Captain Rick: I captured this rare glimpse of Crater Lake and Sentinel Rock thru the firs at Phantom Ship Overlook, on the lake’s southeast edge.
At 1,943 ft. deep, Crater Lake is one of the deepest and bluest lakes in the world. It’s 5 miles wide and ringed by cliffs 2,000 feet high, creating amazing, majestic views. The lake was formed by the shattered remnants of a volcano called Mount Mazama, the largest in North America, which erupted and collapsed into itself 7,700 years ago. Crater Lake is one of purest and most pristine lakes in the world. Crater Lake became a national park in 1902. It is one of the most incredible places of beauty I have ever experienced.
