Experience the amazing geologic features of Mt. Mazama as we journey back into a time when volcanoes and water formed a mountain. Lava flows, ash deposits, and intrusive volcanic dikes provide examples of the mountain’s violent history. By rim walking the volcanic caldera, we will study the magnificent features of a sleeping giant. Streams, snow drifts, and glacial deposits all show the effects of water on the volcano. We will hike down the Cleetwood Cove trail and enter the world of the mountain and the pristine lake that fills its caldera. Crater Lake is some of the purest water in the world, filtered by volcanic rocks and covered by the deep blue water. We will take the boat tour to Wizard Island and hike the cinder cone that holds the crater in the lake. (A swim in the lake will send chills through you, and leave you a changed person!). We will drive to various spots and hike the rim, climb a Fire Lookout peak, and hike to the headwaters of the Rogue River.
