Photographer's Note

Another reflection from the Crater Lake Boat Tour. They are only available from mid-July to mid-September, weather permitting. Tickets are sold only at the Cleetwood Cove Trailhead parking area. The boat tour access requires hiking 2.2 miles round trip on a relatively steep but well maintained and defined trail. If you wish to fish, you can get off on Wizard Island.

The depth of Crater Lake was first measured in 1886 with a simple sounding machine that consisted of a crank and a spool of piano wire. Those first measurements showed the lake to be 1,996 feet deep - not far off from the depth of 1,943 feet that was measured with high tech equipment in 2000!
