The Deepest Lake in America

The volcanic activity at Crater Lake in southern Oregon can be seen yet today even though the mountain top erupted approximately 7,700 years ago. Looking from the south rim to the north rim, one can view the over 1,900 foot deep body of water that has filled the caldera, and the geology of cinder cones, pumice areas, and ridges and mountains formed by lava in the distance.
