Crater Lake is probably one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places we've ever seen. The Lake, 1943' deep at its deepest point, is the deepest lake in the U.S. It was formed almost 8,000 years ago, when Mount Mazama, a volcano, erupted, scattering ash over eight states and three Canadian provinces - 5,000 square miles covered with six inches of ash! The lake is such a deep blue, and so still, that it's hard to tell where the reflections end and the actual mountains begin.
