Good morning, friends. I really enjoyed this informational video from National Park Diaries about how Crater Lake (Oregon) was created.
Hope you enjoy as much as I did!
National Park Diaries: “Crater Lake, Oregon. The Deepest Lake in the United States. Some of the cleanest water in the world. Crater Lake National Park is one of the oldest in America and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year to its beautiful, cerulean waters. But, what created Crater Lake?
Well, a massive volcano. The Crater Lake Volcano Eruption was one of the most powerful eruptions in the world in the past 12,000 years and is the primary reason why Crater Lake is so deep.
I hope you’ll join me on this geological journey to find out how Crater Lake formed and how that violent, chaotic history informs how Crater Lake operates today. Enjoy! “
