The Bluest Lake Ever: Crater Lake, Oregon

Crater Lake is a wonderful masterpiece of volcanism and one of the bluest, clearest lakes on Earth. Also, it’s a perfect excuse to visit and explore Oregon, this wild and green state, home of magnificent mountain peaks, charming waterfalls and a dramatic ocean coast. We spent an amazing day at Crater Lake. Was it enough?…
