This colorfully named island is in the middle of an equally colorful, giant, collapsed volcanic caldera: Crater Lake, in southern Oregon. The lake is the main feature of Crater Lake National Park and is famous for its deep blue color and water clarity. It partly fills a nearly 2,148-foot (655 m)-deep caldera that was formed around 7,700 (± 150) years ago by the collapse of the volcano Mount Mazama. There are no rivers flowing into or out of the lake; the evaporation is compensated for by rain and snowfall at a rate such that the total amount of water is replaced every 250 years. With a depth of 1,949 feet (594 m), the lake is the deepest in the United States. In the world, it ranks ninth for maximum depth, and third for mean (average) depth. Phantom Ship Island is mainly formed from andesite rock that dates from about 400,000 years ago, partly altered by hydrothermal activity. The island is situated on the south east end of Crater Lake and projects more than 200 m (656 ft) out from the wall of the caldera. The island is about 500 ft by 200 ft in size. [Wikipedia]
Thanks very much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, wherever in the world you might be.
