      I have never been there. Please tell me about it. Is it’s just a lake? Did you go visit the island?

    3. Like the name says it is a lake that fills in the crater of a dormant volcano. I have been here a few times as I live in Oregon. My sister got married on the island. It is 2nd deepest lake in North America. No rivers flow in or out of it. All the water comes from rain or snow melt. And the place is freakin gorgeous.

    4. Oh, the island is named Wizard Island and the crater is named The Witch’s Cauldron.

    6. @whoever took these photos: download a program called Photoshop Elements and read or watch a tutorial on photo-merging. you can control exposures yourself or you can let the program automate exposures to even out the light levels (i.e. no lines and discoloration in panoramas). it’s a great program from beginners to experts, lotsa time wasted with that one. 🙂

      its been a few years since i was last there, but it really is a beautiful place. its actually a caldera (i think i spelled that right), which means the volcano that erupted blew itself up so hard that it created a gigantic hole. kinda like mt. st. helens, but that one only blew 1/3 of the mountain off.

      my family and i didnt get to go onto the island, and i dont remember why. but if you ever get the chance to go, its cool.

      on a marginally related note, where do you live MrElzebub? i live in oregon too. sorta. im in college in florida but my home is in central oregon.

    8. Lots of Oregonians here.

      Crater Lake is cool, but like the Golden Gate Bridge or the Statue of Liberty, you kind of take it for granted that it’s there. Growing up in southern Oregon, I can’t say I’ve visited it more than twice.

    9. I’m sure no one will believe me, so I don’t know why even I’m posting this, but:

      I had me some cosmic relations there.

      It was almost exactly a year ago. I was visiting a friend who goes to forestry school at UofO. We went hiking with the Sierra club (which is one of the few nerdy I do well). After switch-backing a bit, she told me her nick-name was Crater and paused, like I should be impressed, and she said, “you know, from an asteroid”. And was I was like, “Yeah, I’m from Seattle.” and she laughed. So ended up going behind the trees, drank some wine, then I back filled that crater, and well…

      Anyway, I didn’t realize where I was until I got home and tried to look-up her latitude & longitude on-line.

      I think I’ve still got some picture on my old cell phone. I’ll check when I get home.

    10. @dub_1211: agreed. also, full manual control is the best for taking panoramas. autopano pro is a pretty good stitching program, as well.

    11. i’ve ridden my motorcycle there twice. it’s beautiful. one of the bluest blues ever. film really doesn’t do it justice.

      hint to anybody going- circle it clockwise. better view, easier parking.

    12. @-um, everybody….

      i know that they have boat tours that take you to the island. and there is also a tree that has been floating around in the lake forever- about three feet sticks up out of the water.

      btw- they say Mt St Helens caldera is so active, it will be at original it’s height in 20-25 years.
