An amazing place, way the HELL up in the mountains. The roads in close due to snowfall in October and don’t entirely reopen until May.

Supposedly it was so remote that the natives of the area didn’t know about it.

It was cloudy that day!

Well that would take a while to circumnavigate.

Yes, it’s tough to remain reflective in this hectic, fast-paced modern world.

That seems a little odd. The Klamath Indians have a name for it (Mount Mazama) a legend about its formation (about 7700 years ago). They may have already been in the area by that time – obsidian tools have been found under some of the ash layers from it.

Mount Mazama was (very) retrospectively named after themselves by a climbing club from Portland. It’s the Aztec word for mountain goat.

I seem to recall that a similar photo of Crater Lake was used to demonstrate early color graphics adapters and monitors back in the mid 1980s.

I’ve been there once. It really is that pretty.
