Wizard Island

Wizard Island

In southern Oregon, there was an enormous mountain of a volcano, Mount Mazama. However, thousands of years ago, this 12,000 foot tall stratovolcano collapsed in on itself in what must have been a chaotic maelstrom of nature's fury. What we are left with, however...is this. The deepest lake in the United States, at nearly 2,000 feet, with a lone island situated in the middle of what is truly the BLUEST water I have ever seen in my life. I have not doctored this photo, I have not edited it, I haven't even boosted the color vibrance of the photograph; it is ACTUALLY this blue. The reason for it is the sheer depth and purity of the water; these two factors ensure that all colors of light but blue are absorbed by the lake. The result is an incredible, surreal vista of cerulean and volcanic rock, thick with trees and growth all around the caldera. And right out there, that lone island I mentioned? That is "Wizard Island", which itself is a cinder cone volcano, sat WITHIN another volcano. Isn't nature a wonderful thing?
