Crater Lake.

How we spent our holiday… Crater Lake!!

Mini– “science lesson”:

Mt Mazama erupted 7,700 years ago- blowing off the top of the mountain and leaving a crater behind.

The former mountain is now a caldera filled with a 2,000 foot deep snow-melt lake… A Crater Lake.

Shorter wave lengths of light (blues) are more easily scattered than absorbed- and the depth of the lake helps to redirect this scattered light back up to the surface… hence the bluest of blue waters- clean and clear too.

This place is seriously beeeeeautiful.
