# 9 DEEPEST LAKE IN THE WORLD!

First off wanted to thank Priyanka for giving me the idea of posting this picture, as she had posted a picture of one of the tallest buildings in the world, so what better way to follow up than with one of the deepest lakes in the world. This picture is of Crater Lake which is located in the Southern Central part of Oregon. Two years ago I spent a couple months working up in Oregon and took the opportunity to visit this Natural beauty twice in my time out there. Crater Lake is currently ranked 9th deepest lake in the world with a depth of 594 meters, or 1949 feet, and measures 6 miles across. The history of the lake is just as amazing as its depth. Crater Lake was once a volcano that went by the name Mount Mazama thousands of years ago and following an eruption collapsed on itself creating the caldera rim, bowl looking feature that we see today. It took hundreds of years of rain and snow accumulation to fill the bowl with what makes up one of the deepest lakes in the world. If you ever get the opportunity to go out and visit the site, you will not be sorry. The water sparkles with a tone of blue that is unseen in the water out here in California and truly captures the eye.
