Just north and east of this lovely area we will head up  to Crater Lake . Known for it’s deep blue waters the lake partly fills a nearly 2,148-foot deep caldera that was formed around  an estimated 7,700 years ago by the collapse of the volcano Mount Mazama. There are no rivers flowing into or out of the lake; the evaporation is compensated for by rain and snowfall at a rate such that the total amount of water is replaced every 250 years. With a depth of 1,949 feet (594 m),the lake is the deepest in the United States.

There will be time for a tour of the Lodge and exploring the wonders of all that Crater Lake has to offer.

There are some choices for our lunch at the Lodge ,Rim Cafe, or Annie Creek Restaurant and Gifts located 7 miles from the Lake.
