Interesting Photo of the Day: Wizard Island in Crater Lake

Spanning 21 square miles and reaching depths over 1,900 feet, Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States. Located inside a dormant volcano called Mount Mazama, Crater Lake resulted from rain and snowmelt accumulating inside the caldera formed after Mount Mazama’s massive eruption in approximately 5700 B.C.

Peeking out of the middle of Crater Lake is Wizard Island–an island aptly named for its resemblance to the hat of a sorcerer. This lake in the depths of the Cascade Mountains is arguably one of the most beautiful spots to capture incredible landscape photographs.

Oregon-based photographer Tyson Fisher captured this shot during a multi-day snowshoe trek around Crater Lake:

“While cold winter winds were gusting from my vantage point, it must have been very calm down below, as I have never seen Crater Lake in such a placid state in the middle of winter.” – Tyson Fisher
