Crater Lake is a natural wonder and one of the most interesting and beautiful places I have ever seen. Formed by a volcanic eruption , Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the US and the 7 th deepest lake in the world. Standing out on the viewing area on the rim it's pretty crazy to know you are on the top of a dormant volcano. The lake itself is the most incredible sapphire blue because of its depth and the clarity of the water that fills the volcanic crater. There are trout and salmon that live in the lake and during the summer season you can fish there. There is also a beautiful hotel that's worth taking a peek that has an incredible view. Be sure to check out the cool gift shop and cafe (and a squish penny machine) where you can get some unique souvenirs and something to eat. DO NOT MISS!
