Photographer's Note

This is a picture of Wizard island in Crater Lake, so called because of its resemblance to a wizard's hat. This lake sits in a caldera and is an amazing blue color, especially when the sun is out. Even though it was August the temperature at the rim of the crater was in the low 50's F. This is something everyone should see first hand as there is nothing that can truly come close to being there and pictures are but a facsimile. The lake itself is a closed system which means that it has no major water sources except rain and snow and the only way out is either through evaporation or percolation; this is one of the reasons the water is so clear and hence blue.
