Crater Lake
A volcano whose crater is filled with a lake. Not much more to say than that. Very blue water makes it a shutterbug's delight. Roadsideamerica.com Report...

Crater Lake

Awesome, moving spectacle. Well worth the curvy drive to the rim. However, gasoline is available at the Mazama Campground area after entering the park from the south. It's expensive, but not 35 miles away from the rim.
