One of our favorite stops on our PCH road trip. Nothing can prepare you for the deep blue color of this Crater Lake in Oregon. Still can’t get over it 💙 Also, it’s the deepest lake in the United States 🇺🇸 Checkout stories for more 💫
The beauty of Oregon has been unreal. Couldn’t be happier to have made the decision to move here and live in a smaller town. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely loved Dallas and Texas. That state will always have a special place in my heart. It just wasn’t where I saw my family long term. Feels incredible to have the mountains back and to feel true fall weather ❄️ 🍁 🌲
What do you get when you cross an enormous, ancient volcanic eruption with the volcano’s subsequent collapse? The country’s deepest, bluest, most spectacular Crater Lake! The collapse occurred 7,700 years ago. And 116 years ago, Crater Lake was designated as our country’s fifth national park. The azure waters occupy a six-mile-wide caldera and can be admired from various perspectives, starting with the 20 overlooks along the Rim Drive that circles the lake. You can also take a Volcano Boat Cruise along the lake’s perimeter, or hike trails that lead you through meadows and past waterfalls to scenic viewpoints. Crater Lake ...
I’d “sleep” in a car knotted up like a tie on a loaf of bread twisted tight. I’d follow up a restless night with terrible “coffee” that burned in our empty stomachs. I’d get sick from a “panini” and then ride through windy mountain roads with my eyes held shut. I’d be your partner to another world I’d have to leave you in. Just to have another moment to watch the sunrise. #sappysaturday#sentimentalstory
“Crater Lake rests in the belly of a dormant volcano. The volcano once stood 12,000 feet tall, but it collapsed after a major eruption 7,700 years ago. Later eruptions formed Wizard Island, a cinder cone that rises from the water. “ This place was unreal. Very hard to capture the size of it. I was very surprised on how big it actually is! I knew it was big but holy crap! If you can visit. Go! @travelcraterlake
Wizard Island rises as a cinder cone out of the caldera of Mount Mazama. Believed to have erupted around 7,700 years ago, Mount Mazama’s top collapsed on itself leaving a volcanic crater that has slowly filled with rain and snowmelt to create the stunning blue hues of #craterlake . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Supposedly the eruption scattered all over the North West, reaching as far as Canada and Nevada. Hope it doesn’t blow again today! 😜 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Check out those hues in pic number 3. #nofilter That’s the real colors shining through!
