I visited Crater Lake last week. It is just beautiful. It is in Oregon, where I live. Here is some information about it.

Crater Lake is 1,943 feet deep. That makes it the deepest lake in the United States, and the ninth deepest lake in the world!

For approximately 400,000 years, volcanic eruptions here built up a 10,000 12,000 foot mountain now called Mt. Mazama. Seven thousand seven hundred years ago, the volcano exploded in a cataclysmic eruption. During this eruption, so much material was evacuated from the internal magma chamber that afterwards, there was not enough left to support the remaining mountain and it collapsed and created the hole the caldera that we now see today half filled with water.

Part of a range called " The Cascades". The eruption that formed it is the result of a small tectonic plate called the Juan De Fuca Plate being subducted under the North American Plate. It was this subduction that caused the eruption of Mt.St Helens in 1980.
