Crater Lake is the deepest lake in North America , second deepest in the world and the bluest thing I've ever seen in my life. If you never been here, then you've never actually been in Oregon. The drive through is about 4 hours from Portland to the park. About two hours of the drive consist of forest all around you. After paying the $15.00 entrance fee we drove to the Rim of the lake. When we arrived we saw a masterpiece in front of our eyes. This lake was surreal its a little bit windy but the lake was smooth as glass.
The weather was beautiful, it wasn't too hot for the month of August. Lucky for us there wasn't much crowd that day . We drove around the entire lake, each viewpoint stop gives us a different view. We are considering to revisit this place, our goal for next trip is to take the boat tour, trolley, and hike all the way up. Will update until then. Please find the time and go enjoy this gem in the beautiful state of Oregon.
To think this was a volcano preserved in time just makes me appreciate what Mother Earth has created for us.
