View of Crater Lake in Winter

Detailed Description


Cliffs along north rim of the caldera rise about 1,000 feet above the lake surface (elevation 6,173 feet). Wizard Island is visible from this vantagepoint. The deep blue color of the lake is a reflection of the clear sky above and the great depth of the water (not from any mineral content in the water!).
