Crater Lake National Park Panoramic Picture - Winter

SKU: CRATER1
This panorama of Crater Lake was taken by James Blakeway. Perched at the crest of the Cascade Mountain Range in the state of Oregon, Crater Lake National Park is one of the snowiest inhabited places in America, receiving an average of 44 feet of snow per year. Open year-round, the park protects the deepest lake in the United States, Crater Lake, known for the purest water on earth and depths up to 1,943 feet. The lake rests inside a caldera formed about 7,700 years ago, when a 12,000-foot-tall volcano collapsed following a major eruption. Today, the volcano's outer slopes are blanketed with old-growth forests and harbour a variety plants and animals, including several rare species.

Crater Lake National Park Panoramic - Summer

SKU: CRATER2
This panorama of Crater Lake, taken by James Blakeway, features a stunning blue lake with depths of 1,943 feet and two picturesque islands, surrounded by sheer cliffs almost 2000 feet high. Located in Oregon’s Crater Lake National Park, it is the deepest lake in the United States and ninth deepest in the world. Known for the purest water on earth, the lake is isolated from surrounding streams and rivers, with no inlet or outlet, and receives its primary input from an average of 524 inches of snowfall annually. Almost 7,700 years ago, a 12,000-foot-tall volcano collapsed following a major eruption and created the beautiful lake we know today, whose waters are of unmatched color and clarity.

Crater Lake Panoramic Pictures

Crater Lake panoramas capture the natural beauty of one of the U.S. National Parks, located in southern Oregon. Encompassing the ancient caldera of Crater Lake, pictures of its still waters rest in the remains of the volcano Mount Mazama and its surrounding forests.

Snow is prevalent at higher elevations in Oregon, and this is certainly the case in Crater Lake panoramic pictures, which receives more snow than any other location in its state. With an average of 98 days receiving snow annually, the yearly average snowfall is 44 feet with some days receiving as many as 37 inches within a 24 hour time period.

Perhaps the most iconic imagery in pictures of Crater Lake is the brilliant blue hue of the lake itself, known for having the purest water on earth. Fed completely by rain and snowfall, changes in the lake's depth are attributed directly to evaporation and has been recorded as deep as over 1,900 feet in some years.

As the deepest lake in the Western Hemisphere and third deepest lake in the world, the beautiful natural setting of Crater Lake panoramic pictures inspires a serene experience.
