Wizard Island, Crater Lake, Oregon Formed more than 7,700 years ago by the collapse of Mt. Mazama in southern Oregon, Crater Lake, at 1,949 feet, is the deepest lake in the US, and the 7th deepest in the world. The record clarity depth of 134 feet, is due to its isolation from incoming streams & rivers.

"Cold and Alone" by Marc Adamus. From the photographer: "The solitary unfrozen line of a burried stream disappears into a frozen lake and the sunset beyond, photographed from a very remote lake on the North face of Jasper's Mount Fryatt, in Alberta."
Crater Lake National Park, Oregon: Crater Lake has inspired people for thousands of years. No place else on earth combines a deep, pure lake, so blue in color; sheer surrounding cliffs, almost two thousand feet high; two picturesque islands; and a violent volcanic past. It is a place of immeasurable beauty, and an outstanding outdoor laboratory and classroom.
