Have you ever been to Oregon? Or maybe you live in Northern California and are planning a trip to Oregon? If so, and you are into the outdoors and beautiful views, I recommend visiting Crater Lake. You may have heard of it before, but here is some extra information for those that don’t know.
Crater Lake is a National Park in the Cascade Mountains of southern Oregon. Many think that Crater Lake was formed from a meteor because of the name, but in actuality, it formed from a violent volcanic eruption of Mount Mazama. Now, everyone who visits get to perceive the beautiful views that the mountain range has to offer. Plus, an added gorgeous sight is Wizard Island, which is an island kind of in the middle of Crater Lake. Another wondrous fact about Crater Lake, is that it is the deepest lake in the United States!
When is the best time to visit? Well, that just depends on the person. If you look at photos of the lake, it is gorgeous in the Summer and mesmerizing in the Winter. I have personally only been in the Summer, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be going again in the Winter! Either way, on the day that you are planning a visit, be sure to check their website (link below) before going to make sure that there is decent visibility that day. They have a webcam that you can watch on their website to make sure the clouds aren’t making Crater Lake completely invisible. Are you thinking about going? Or have you already been there?
