Over on, a new member took these pics on a recent bike trip to Crater lake. Nice shots.

Here's his blurb...

"Crater Lake used to be Mt Mazama, a volcano that erupted 7,000 years ago and then collapsed, forming the 5 by 6 mile, 1,949 foot deep lake (the deepest lake in the US). This is a view of the (almost) entire lake. It's so big, that even my 14mm lens could not get it all in one frame. That's Wizard Island in the foreground, a cinder cone volcano that erupted a few hundred years after Crater Lake was formed."

"...The other island, appropriately named Phantom Ship Island. This is where I'll build my retirement cabin."

His whole post is here.
