Crater Lake Panorama

Earlier this month we visited Crater Lake National Park in Oregon.  I can't tell you how clean the air was nor how pristine the lake appeared to be.  The color was incredible and it looked totally unblemished.  Half of the road around the rim was still closed due to snow but we saw the prettiest section and this is the view from the first pullout at which we arrived.  It's hard to believe that prior to the volcanic explosion a mountain existed that was from one side of the peaks to the other side of the lake.  That would have been one very big explosion.  And the little crater in the middle?  That occurred at the same time.  Pretty amazing.
