Our next stop today was Crater Lake National Park.  This was formed from a volcano, in case the name doesn’t give you the clue.  It is one of the deepest lakes in the world and the water is so deep blue you hardly can believe it.  The lake is at over 6,000 feet level and the edges of the mountains around it are from seven to eight thousand feet elevation.

The day we were there the wind was up and thus the water in the lake was creating waves on the surface.  Too much for any boats that day.  And it was only 55 degrees, so between the cold and the wind everyone was wearing their jackets and sweatshirts.  

We took in the lake for awhile before checking out the village shop.  We had a good bowl of hot soup for lunch and then checked for souvenirs.  Naturally I got a spoon and hubby got some postcards.   We also talked to the salesgirl who was working here this summer from Germany.  This was her second summer in the U. S. from her home country, and both years at a different National Park.  Sounded wonderful to us.
