And the sun rises ...
Crater Lake National Park Oregon

Wizard Island in twilight at Crater Lake National Park in the cascade mountains of oregon.

Travel Oregon and ... experience the mystery of Crater Lake

What a mighty depth is here, Where clouds of pearl drift far below And stars show through; Where sunbeams play with emerald purple waves And all the Silent Sea is stained with blue.

Stanton C Lapham, 1931
