Crater Lake was formed when Mount Mazama, a 12,000-foot-tall volcano, erupted and collapsed approximately 7,700 years ago.
What an image...
Mount Mazama bubbling over, pouring out all that she held inside ...
Releasing the pressure and build up.
Out of a cataclysmic volcanic eruption, seeming destruction, was born a magnificent, awe-inspiring lake, nicknamed “lake majesty.”
This is native land to the Klamath tribes who regard the lake with much respect and awe.
Crater Lake is ah-mazing.
This is no filter blue. It’s the deepest lake in America at 1,943 feet. The water comes directly from snow or rain, there are no inlets from other water sources. This means no sediment or mineral deposits are carried into the lake, helping it maintain its rich color and making it one of the cleanest and clearest lakes in the world.
My take-away from Crater Lake—
A catastrophic event led to a sacred space for something incredible to emerge.
There are some places that command reverence. This is one of them. xo -a
