Measuring in at 1,943 feet (592 meters), Crater Lake in Oregon is the deepest lake in the United States, and the ninth deepest in the world. The surrounding cliffs rise over 2,000 feet giving this spot the feeling that it descends forever.

This view highlights the island called Phantom Ship, the remains of a lava conduit poking up from the center of the lake near the Dutton Cliffs.
