Crater Lake National Park has inspired people for hundreds of years. No place else on earth combines a deep, pure lake, so blue in color; sheer surrounding cliffs, almost two thousand feet high; two picturesque islands; and a violent volcanic past. At 1,943 feet (592 meters), Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States and one of the deepest in the world. The depths were first explored thorougly in 1886 by a party from the U.S. Geological Survey. Their primitive sounding device consisted of a lead pipe attached to piano wire. After lowering it into the water at 168 locations around the lake, they concluded the deepest part to be 1,996 feet (608 meters).

May 5-12 Natural Areas Celebration Week
September 2010 – Oregon Ecotourism and Sustainable Tourism Conference
In the 1960s and 1970s, Oregon developed a reputation for thinking creatively about land use and nature. Supporting changes in our land-use system to allow sustainably designed outdoor communities can create positive change and reinvigorate rigid and unimaginative policies. They will save our forests as well as renew our compact of providing enlightened stewardship to our natural resources.
