A Hope For Tomorrow

Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

I only had one sunset and one view point to photograph during my first visit to his secluded national park in the southern OR. Crater Lake is truly an amazing wonder. There are no rivers flowing into or out of the lake; the evaporation is compensated for by rain and snowfall at a rate such that the total amount of water is replaced every 250 years. At 1,943 feet the lake is the deepest in the United States, and the seventh or ninth deepest in the world, depending on whether average or maximum depth is measured.
