Description:
It is difficult to convey the shocking immensity created by one of the greatest volcanic eruptions in history that took place here about 7,700 years ago. Erupting 50 cubic km of material, an 8 to 10 km diameter caldera was excavated. The original mountain rose almost 1,500 metres above the 1,883 metre lake and the peak would have rested between the two clouds in the centre of the image. Wizard Island ( www.flickr.com/photos/jeff_pj/14654841799/ and www.flickr.com/photos/jeff_pj/14880609972/in/photostream/ ) can be seen on the far shore. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crater_Lake
