Crater Lake: Mirror of Heaven

Special | 26m 35s Video has closed captioning.

Explore one of the most beautiful, deepest lakes in the world, Crater Lake in southern Oregon. Formed by a massive volcanic eruption approximately 7,700 years ago, it is prominent in Klamath and Modoc Native American history and culture. William Gladstone Steel, Crater Lake's biggest supporter, struggled to designate it as a National Park in 1902, allowing its pristine splendor to be preserved.
