Today we went to Crater Lake, a lake formed inside the collapsed top of Mt Mazama. The lake is the deepest (1,946 ft) in the United States, and its blue color is legendary.

Unfortunately, there was a bicycle event in the park which resulted in 3/4 of it being off limits to us. Very disappointing to say the least. The following photos were taken from a small part of the West Rim Drive.
