Crater Lake (page to come) is located in Southern Oregon in the Cascade Mountain range, 160 km inland from the Pacific Ocean. Crater lake was born 7,700 years ago when Mount Mazama had a blasting eruption that blow out the summit and left instead a volcanic basin named a caldera that further on filled with water. The surface of the water is at an elevation of 1,883 meters while Mount Mazema stood at 3,660 meters! It is 592 meters deep. The missing elevation has been blown out, which makes an enormous amount.
