Crater Lake, Oregon

March 16, 2003
Crater Lake, a volcanic caldera in South Central Oregon's Cascade Mountains, boasts breathtaking scenery, created about 7,700 years ago with the volcanic eruption and subsequent collapse of the summit of Mt. Mazama. Today, the crater, about 8 km wide, contains the deepest lake in the United States - nearly 600 m (2000 ft) deep. Astronaut photo
