Take a hike! (With me?): Little Crater Lake

Okay, so everyone knows about THE Crater Lake, as in Crater Lake National Park. But have you heard of Little Crater Lake? I thought not! According to Wikipedia, geologists consider Little Crater Lake “an oddity”, because they don’t really know how it formed. Some geologic process formed a depression in the ground, which was filled by “Artesian spring water”*.

However it was made, it is beautiful, and a worthy little hike to do if you wake up early and want to explore before the world wakes up.

You can see all the fallen trees in the lake all the way down. They look perfectly preserved.
