Wizard Island is a volcanic cinder cone which forms an island in Crater Lake, Oregon - the deepest lake in the US (1,943 feet). The impressive average depth of this volcanic lake is due to the nearly symmetrical 4K foot deep caldera formed 7K years ago during the violent eruptions and subsequent collapse of Mt. Mazama. Crater Lake has no streams flowing into or out of it. In the distance one can see rain showers during the golden hour. One of my most spiritual flights to date.
