Beauty Blew Its Top

Crater Lake is one of the prettiest places I’ve seen.  The water is so blue, and the flora and fauna alike are an eye feast.

The Dappled posted some pictures, which is what reminded me of the trip we took a couple of years back.  It is the kind of place you want to go (away from the tourist center :-)), sit with a good book and just breathe–that’s in between running around capturing photos, of course!

The lake was formed by a volcanic explosion several thousand years ago.  The mountain literally blew its top, but beauty has risen from the ashes, as in so many things.

    your colors are even more brilliant. we had forest fire to contend with.. I think that the color of the lake, first seen in person, takes the breath away.
