Crater Lake National Park is a fascinating place. The whole area is part of the Pacific circle if fire, there are loads of volcanoes around, all inactive at least for the moment.
Crater lake lies inside a volcanic basin (caldera) and was created when Mount Mazama collapsed 7 700 years ago following an eruption.
There is a lake in the crater, very deep with beautiful blue water.
As you will see on the pictures, a second smaller volcano showed up inside the 'old' crater and has itself a crater.
The region is beautiful and we manged to do some nice hikes; very much enjoyed hiking up Crater Peak which is another dormant volcano.
